Sgraffito, derived from the Italian word for "scratch," involves decorating semi-dry pottery by layering underglazes or slips and then scratching away sections to unveil stunning images, textures, and patterns. Dive into this exciting one-day workshop focused on creative expression and surface techniques. Participants will explore a range of sgraffito techniques and will learn various image transfer methods on a provided piece of pottery.
