Sgraffito Workshop: Red Clay, White Slip, colorful sgraffito

 Date: Saturday, August 10th 2024

When: 9:30-12 (2.5 hours)

Where: Firefly Valley Campus, West Asheville. We will be in an open air, outdoor pavilion. 

What: Red Clay, White Slip Sgraffito Workshop! I will teach you how to decorate your very own piece of functional ceramics using the Sgraffito technique. I will provide a hand thrown mug, bowl or oil bottle, ready to decorate, to each participant. Workshop starts with a 30 minute demonstration followed by 2 hours of supported work time. Pieces will be glazed and fired after the workshop for you to pick up at a later date. 

The sgraffito technique with red clay and white slip is a bit different than the black and white sgraffito. With this method, you paint your image/decoration on with layers of colorful underglaze and use sgraffito to define the edges and create details. It is less like making a lenolium block (like the black and white sgraffito technique) and more like painting with some extra spice and forgiveness. 

Accessibility: Pavilion has a ramp or two steps leading to the deck. There is a railing along the back  and sides but not the front of the pavilion. Bathroom is on the groundfloor with one step up. Parking is in grass or gravel. Area leading to the pavilion is flat with gravel and wood chips.  

Once you buy your ticket I will send an email to you with the address of the workshop and details about the day. Attendance will be capped at 8 particapants per session. If this morning workshop fills up and there is enough interest I may add an afternoon session. There will be snacks! Thank you for your support everyone!
