Sgraffito Slab Pot - Ceramics Pop In (Aug 2, 4)

This is a two day workshop: July 12th 2-4pm AND July 14th 2-4pm

Ages 14+

Sgraffito is a surface decoration technique in ceramics that literally means "to scratch." By covering the surface of a vessel or sculpture in underglazes or colored clay, you can scratch through the surface to draw contrasted monochromatic images. This is a great way to bring a drawing and painting quality into your ceramics work. This class will meet twice. First, we will be creating slab pot vases, and painting them with underglazes. The second class we will be drawing on our vases using the sgraffito technique. This is a relaxing and fun way to explore two-dimensional work with your three-dimensional surfaces. Any level ceramics experience welcome.

scholarships & aid

FAVA reviews and considers all application for scholarship assistance. While we may not be able to provide a complete scholarship to all those who request it, we are committed to making our classes available to as many people as possible – regardless of individual financial circumstances. For this reason, it is important that all scholarship requests are received well in advance of the class starting date, so we may allocate our available funds accordingly. We may consider any of the following factors when determining eligibility for scholarships:

  • Annual family income
  • Individual or special circumstances
  • Whether the applicant qualifies for the National Free/Reduced Price School Lunch program
    (for students age 18 & younger)


**FAVA also encourages applicants to consider partial scholarship assistance, in which case the student only pays some portion of the class tuition.

All information will be kept confidential and will be used solely to determine the amount of scholarship assistance to be provided.
