Sgraffito Workshop in partnership with Clay Rooms
Try your hand at sgraffito which means to scratch in Italian. It is a pottery decorating technique produced by applying a layer of colour to leather hard pottery and then scratching off parts of the layers to create contrasting images, patterns and texture and reveal the colour of the clay underneath. Each course participant will be supplied with a leather hard plate. You will be guided through the design process from initial drawing, transfer to the plate and finally creating your finished piece. The work will be glazed and fired and can be collected or delivered 2/3 weeks after the workshop.
