Dear friend,

I’m so excited to be heading back to Anderson Ranch Arts Center,⁠ in Snowmass, Colorado, to teach a 1-week workshop on June 08 - 12, 2020 about my favorite subject:
China Painting, Luster, and Cold-Finishing Techniques on ceramics.
There are still a few spots available and it would amazing if you would join me for a week of exploration, play, and exchange of ideas at one of the most respected visual arts programs in the country.

Space is limited, so if you are interested, please sign up ASAP
or contact Studio Coordinator Louise Deroualle
with questions at 970/924-5050

Cheers, Melanie.

More is More: China paint techniques
JUNE 8 – 12

CONCEPT China paint, luster, and cold-finishing techniques are
used all over the world to finesse and highlight many qualities
of the ceramic form. These surface decorations are used for
expressing cultural heritage, storytelling, color theory and
more. This workshop is designed to marry the ceramic form and
imagery, personalize the students’ own ceramics work, while
exploring new surface decoration techniques. Students indulge
in layer after layer of lavish ornamentation and embellishments.
Participants may bring up to four of their own glazed functional
and/or sculptural ceramic pieces to work on. Commercial glazed
ceramic tiles are provided to practice on and decorate.

MEDIA China painting, decal, flocking, gold luster, gold leaf and
gold powder applications, image transfer
