This virtual workshop will focus on the surface design technique of sgraffito starting with custom colored slips on red earthenware clay although this process can be used on any type of clay. Participants will learn about making and applying slips and the variety of textures and line variation that sgraffito has to offer. Gabo will be demonstrating how pieces are slipped, prepped with guides for more precise carving, and finally carved.
With time remaining after the demo, there will be an opportunity for in-depth Q&A. All workshops will be hosted by the Sonoma Ceramics staff; participants will be encouraged to ask questions using the chat forum in Zoom, and the staff will communicate these questions to Gabo during her demo.
Students will receive the Zoom recording of the workshop to watch at their convenience for two weeks after the workshop (this will be sent to you 24 hours after the workshop). Many participants choose to observe the virtual workshop and work later, but you may also work alongside Gabo during the demo. If you cannot attend the whole workshop, you may drop in and out as you choose - remember, you'll have the video to watch for 2 weeks after the workshop is over.
Instructor: Gabo Martini (Gabriela Martinez)
