About the Event

Sgraffito, Coloured Slip & Bowls

Join us in our beautiful studio for a relaxing peacful Saturday afternoon of painting and drawing on your very own hand thrown ceramic bowls, one large 7 one small. Using coloured slips and underglaze paints to add colour and depth you will then use the ancient art of sgraffito to mark make, draw and add design to your hand thrown ceramic bowl.

You will be working on a leather hard ceramic bowl - meaning you are working on a bowl that hasn't yet been fired, but this is needed to do this wonderful form of decoration. You will be shown how to use and apply coloured slips and underglaze paints using various decorating techniques, Emily will then demonstrate how to take away elements of colour and scrape into bowl to draw, add depth and design to your own of a kind bowl. You will have two tiles/wall plaques to practice you technique/design and colours  before you work onto your bowl. Each large bowl will be hand thrown and trimmed before the workshop at our studio. Each bowl will be made with the same weight of clay but each bowl will be slightly different as they are hand made by us. At the end of the workshop you will leave your bowl with Emily for your bowl to be fired to bisque ware, dipped in a clear glossy glaze and fired again. Your work will be ready for collection two weeks after the workshop, when you collect your work it will be shiny and glossy and ready for you to eat a giant bowl of coco pops from :) (we will also fire your tiles fo you to)
