Hello All-
(I'm re-posting because my last one may not have been done correctly)

My name is Paul Andrew Wandless and I=91ll be a demonstrator at a clay confe=
rence called
=93Creations In Clay: Slab & Wheel Work=94 on September 7th & 8th. The Conf=
erence is being hosted
by Potters Workshops, Inc. and the Art League of Long Island. The conferenc=
e demonstrations will
take place at the Art League of Long Island, NY ( and th=
e address is 107 East
Deer Park Rd., Dix Hills, NY 11746.

My demonstration will be an introduction to various images transfer techniqu=
es for handbuilt and
thrown work. Monoprinting, relief printing, screening, stenciling, stamping=
and embossing will be
covered during the 2-day sessions. I will use images and narrative as a mea=
ns of personal
expression and also show how designs, shapes and text can be incorporated. =
The clay surface
essentially will be used as canvasses for exploration of image, texture and =
color. The surface of
clay can be completely covered with printed images or just a small detail ca=
n be applied with
these processes. I will show that you don=92t need to be a printmaker to ta=
ke advantage of the
process on your clay work, no matter what it is you make.
