This course will teach you excactly how I make my pieces in the raw clay. This course teaches both stoneware and porcelain. If you're working in another clay, you can use the same techniques I teach in here.
If you're making pieces just for fun or if you're selling the work, in this course I'm teaching you how to make plates and platters like I'm doing it. Some fundamental knowlegde in making ceramics is required for this course.
The course will consist of both text and videos in English in different modules.
I will teach you what tools I use (they are VERY simple) and how to prepare the clay. Then how I roll the clay out and how to treat your pieces in the drying process. I will also teach you how to prepare the pieces before the bisquefire.
We will also cover trouble shooting and I’ll tell you all I have learned through trial and error over the years! This will save you a ton of time and money, if you’re looking to learn how to make plates and platters.
