The Clayer, Part One: Surfacing E-Course

The super talented San Francisco clay artist, Diana Fayt will be offering up her e-course '' again this spring (starting next week - March 11th) and I thought I'd mention it as its a cool way to learn online how to create rich and dynamic surfaces on clay at an intermediate level. The course, "The Clayer" will run for six weeks from March 11th to April 18th, 2013.  During the six weeks the course will cover various surface applications on clay such as: mishima inlay, monoprinting on clay, carving and printing with your own block prints. Cool yes? They will also explore using unusual objects as printing tools and how to use other clay drawing media.

Throughout the course Diana will discuss image development as well as teach you how make templates from your own images and how to transfer those images to your clay surfaces. The setting will be a warm and safe, no pressure environment, where you share what you make and learn with other participants and positive feedback is encouraged. You will also get a glimpse into Diana's world, where she will share her own personal inspirations, stories as well as a recipe or two."
