 (1 day)
with Martha Manikas-Foster
Ages: 16+
Members - $35.00 / Non-Members - $42.00

Decorate a plate! Upon registration, pick one of our many colored glazes which will be applied to a damp, premade clay plate. Students will pick a design template or freehand their own design to trace into the clay. Once you’re certain of your design, you will use tools to carve away a thin layer of the glazed clay, a technique called sgrafitto. You can make your design as minimal or ornate as you like. Pieces are functional and food safe, but can also be used as decorative wall art. Your piece will be fired, and ready to pick up a few weeks after the workshop.
