Drop-In Workshop @ BBAC: Cuerda Seca Tiles

March 8, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Participants will explore the surface of a bisque-fired tile using the Cuerda Seca resist method. This technique uses black wax resist to separate glaze-colored areas to give a “stained glass” appearance.

Space is limited to 12 people. Participants must arrive by 2:45 p.m.

Check in at the LaBan Commons Gallery prior to attending the workshop.

Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
