This workshop takes place in your home on Zoom!
This online workshop will focus on the fundamentals of working with slabs and decorating with underglaze using the sgraffito technique. Sgraffito comes from the Italian word “graffiare,” which means to scratch.
Participants will build a slab platter then will decorate by painting their pieces with colored underglazes and scratching away designs to expose the clay underneath. We’ll provide you with clay and a basic toolkit (tools to be returned with work).
You can pick up your supply kit from either the Santa Monica or DTLA studio. After the workshop, return your tools and drop off your finished piece. We will fire and glaze your piece with a transparent glaze and email you when it’s ready to be picked up!
This workshop is taught by LA-based ceramic artist Liz Navarro. Liz combines her interest in art and design to create modern yet nostalgic decorative ceramic items. She draws most of her inspiration from her multicultural heritage, always surrounded by beautiful handmade objects. In her work, she enjoys incorporating traditional techniques and materials with contemporary ideas to deliver unique works of art.
