Sgraffito Tile Workshop - 30460409

Come learn the exciting pottery technique of sgraffito. Sgraffito is a method of decoration by cutting away parts of a surface layer to expose a different colored ground. The word sgraffito is Italian for “scratched”. In pottery the pattern is incised through a white or colored slip to reveal the clay body color beneath the slip. It is a wonderful technique because as you work, an image slowly immerges to the delight of the artist and the observer alike.
