Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity full


This hands-on workshop will provide the opportunity to compare and contrast properties of familiar fill materials such as plaster, Modostuc, Flugger, Polyfilla, and bulked adhesives. The workshop will incorporate worktime with the materials, facilitated by discussions of their properties and examples of their use effectively. Instructors from institutions with large ceramic collections will provide tips and tricks for preparing lacunae for fills, finishing techniques, workflow and other concerns in choosing materials. The focus will fall on low-fired to medium-paste ceramics rather than porcelain.
