What’s new at MSS Clay Studio

Sgraffito Workshop:

Scratch the Surface

Wednesday, 3-5:30pm

Sgraffito, a decorative technique, traces back to an Italian word meaning, to scratch. Go beyond scratching the surface to explore this fun method, combining color, contrast & carving. Start by applying some color with slips to a leather hard piece. Next, carve through the surface to reveal the color of the clay and create contrast and let your creativity flow.  Adults/All levels, some experience with clay is helpful but not necessary
