Thursday Evening Maiolica

Thu Apr 02 to May 28, 2020, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Maiolica is a technique for painters! Led by ceramic artist Lindsay Montgomery, you’ll focus on creating strong thrown forms suitable for the Maiolica technique, which allows pots to become canvases for bright, expressive, or detailed brushwork. Maiolica is characterized by dynamic painted surfaces and bright colours. The Gardiner has an impressive collection of this type of ware from Italy, England, and France, and an emphasis will be placed on how to generate personal and meaningful imagery that compliments and strengthens pottery and sculptural forms.

Dates: April 2, 16, 23, 30, May 7, 14, 21, 28
No Class April 9 (Passover)
