Nerikomi dyed clay workshop with Angel Oloshove


Saturday, May 28, 2022 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft
4848 Main Street, Houston, TX 77002 (Map)

Join former resident artist and ceramist Angel Oloshove to explore the traditional, Japanese Nerikomi technique, which is a decorative, clay coloring process. In this unique, beginner level workshop, participants will learn how to dye clay with mason stain and how to stack and slice the clay to reveal a graphic or marbled pattern. The resulting slabs are ideal for handbuilding. During the workshop, participants can use their Nerikomi clay to make one large platter or several small dishes. Ceramics will be fired in a kiln with a clear, food-safe glaze and ready for pick-up after May 16, 2022, at HCCC.
