The workshop taught by Redware artist Denise Wilz of Wilz Pottery will focus on the sgraffito technique used by 18th and 19th century Pennsylvania German potters. 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.
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.
