A New Approach
The Bray is embarking on a new approach to seminars and traditional workshops! We are committed to offering quality learning opportunities to support all student types and will be exploring new formats of condensed learning programs from prominent artists in the field.
While immersive summer workshops as they were (prior to our 2020 closure) will not return, we look forward to providing alternative summer programs in conjunction with The Bray Incubator program, and workshop opportunities throughout the calendar year. Stay tuned for more information in 2023!
Upcoming Seminars and Workshops
A New Direction with Overglaze; A Hands On Workshop With Paul Lewing
Don’t miss this unique 4 day opportunity to join artist, author, and educator Paul Lewing as he shares his extensive knowledge on this traditional technique (commonly referred to as China Painting) which is experiencing a revival!
Learn how to use various brush types to achieve unique results. Explore stamping, printing, spraying and stenciling techniques. Investigate resist and wipeout techniques, traditional shading, ground laying methods, and a variety of fascinating materials unfamiliar to many ceramic artists!
AUGUST 25TH – 28TH, 2022
- Arrive Thursday and dive into an evening introduction lesson from 5-7pm.
- Spend all day Friday and Saturday discovering, connecting, & creating.
- Wrap up Sunday with a final group session from 9am-noon.
This class is open to students of all levels, but some experience in ceramics, traditional overglaze/china painting, or non-ceramic painting techniques will prove helpful.
Enrolled students will have access to the facilities, including a partial kitchen and the John C. Board Research Library, for the duration of their workshop. All firings and class materials are included in tuition except a small list of helpful items to bring with you.
