Sunday, June 10th10am to 4 pm
$90 non-members (not incl taxes) 993 Talwood Dr, Peterborough
Jocelyn Jenkins is an Ottawa potter who works out of her own studio in Old Ottawa South. She is a fixture at the Old Firehall Pottery Studio where she has shared her love of clay with children of all ages for many years. Jocelyn is also a functional potter whose work can be seen several times a year in shows and sales in the area. Through her work she attempts to forge a connection with her audience. Although her work is primarily functional, she attempts to create a narrative that will draw people into her world – a world where a turtle or a snail might join you for coffee, and thereby provoke a smile.
This workshop will cover some of the elements that go into making a successful design before launching into a hands-on demonstration of sgraffito techniques. Students will explore sgraffito techniques using both slips and underglazes on test tiles and larger pieces in this all-day workshop.· 10:00 - 10:30 Slide show – show and tell …Design considerations
