Learn the sgraffito technique used by early Pennsylvania potters. Sgraffito, meaning to “scratch,” is a method of decorating clay and has been done for centuries. Students 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 12.
Pre-registration & payment required by October 12th through their website.
Each registration includes one 7 inch plate. If you would like a 10 inch plate please email or call 1-215-260-1133 to let me know this. There is an additional $10 charge for the larger size and it is payable at the workshop. This will enable me to have enough plates in the sizes that everyone requests. Thank you.
Participants should bring a bagged lunch.
Ages: 12-15 with adult, or 16 & older; cost of materials vary per plate size —please visit the website or call for more details.
