Instructor: Denise Wilz
Begin your class with an introduction to Pennsylvania Redware, including a demonstration using a rolling pin, circle cutter, and mold to create a plate. Then experiment with two decorating techniques: sgraffito and slip-trailing, used by 17th through 19th century Pennsylvania German potters. Denise will bring books with ideas or you may try your own. The class includes all materials, firing, and processing one 7″ plate.
Additional plates: 7″ plate for $25; 10″ plate for $35. Can make up to 3 plates.
