Sgraffito Fun!

June 23, 2024


Strand Center for the Arts (Arts Center), Plattsburgh

In this workshop, students will learn various sgraffito techniques to bring to life their own surface design illustrations. After a brief demonstration of sgraffito on a prepped, leather hard ceramic tile, students will then be given time to sketch out and plan their own illustration, which they will then apply to either a leather hard tile or personal preexisting work that they wish to decorate. Students will be using black slip (or underglaze) over the top of a white clay body, and carving into the slip to create imagery akin to a linocut print. The result is visually striking yet simple in execution. The workshop is perfect for beginners and expert ceramicists alike! Fired pottery will be ready to pick up in 3-4 weeks.

Ages 15+
