May 15
Sgraffito Workshop
Mennonite Heritage Center
565 Yoder Road
Harleysville, PA 19438-1020

Learn the sgraffito technique used by early Pennsylvania potters. Sgraffito, meaning to “scratch,” is a method of decorating clay that has been done for centuries.  Participants will draw and scratch a design of their choosing in a damp clay coating on a redware plate. All materials, tools and idea books will be provided. The plates are taken to my studio to be glazed, fired, and then returned for participants to pick up or have shipped. You will have the opportunity to sgraffito a 7 or 10 inch plate, maximum of 3 plates.  Class size is limited to 8.

June 19
Stahls Pottery Show
6826 Corning Rd., Zionsville 18092

30 potters displaying and selling their work.  Demonstrations throughout the day.

​The Stahl’s Pottery historical site is a significant example of a rural arts and crafts revival pottery. The round, beehive, wood-fired kiln (originally built in 1933,) survives to the present day.

Brothers, Thomas and Isaac Stahl revived Stahl’s Pottery in the mid-1930s. They used the potting skills they had learned from their father, Charles Stahl, in the late nineteenth century. Charles Stahl’s pottery site was located along the Indian Creek in the village of Powder Valley, Pennsylvania.

The Stahl brothers produced both utilitarian & decorative redware pottery from the years, 1934 until 1950.
