The workshop taught by redware artist Denise Wilz of Wilz pottery will focus on the sgraffito decoration technique used by 18th and 19th century Pennsylvania German potters to make expressive designs in their folk-art pottery. Sgraffito means to “scratch” and workshop participants will draw and scratch a design on a redware plate. Participants can choose a traditional Pennsylvania German design or create their own!
No experience required. One 10″ plate is included with registration. After the workshop, the plates will be dried, glazed and fired – this takes 4 to 6 weeks. Participants will be notified when plates are ready to be picked up in the Landis Valley Museum Store. Please bring a lunch. All sales are final. Proceeds benefit the Museum.
WHEN: Saturday September 16, 2023, 10 AM – 4 PM
WHERE: Museum Store, second floor
COST: $118.00 [Additional plates to decorate can be purchased: 7″ $36 and 10″ $48]
