4-6 Person Sgraffito Workshop

4-6 Person Sgraffito Workshop

from 400.00

Want to decorate your own pottery but don't have the time to take a quarter long class? Schedule a time with Zak Helenske at Ballard Pottery Workshop for a three hour long workshop. Choose between 4-6 spots and gather your family, friends, or co-workers. You will carve decorations into pre-made thrown vessels. He will show you the sgraffito technique in which you carve through a white slip coated terra cotta pot. The dark clay is revealed with each drawn line. The workshop will include several demos, including throwing, slipwork, and sgraffito. After the class, stroll over to one of the numerous local breweries, Domanico Wine Cellar, or one of Ballard's great restaurants.

Each student will get 1 cup and 1 bowl to carve. Zak will fire and glaze your pots after the workshop. You will receive a notification email when your pots are ready to be picked up (typically about two weeks).

This is a small-sized class with a maximum of 6 students, allowing for one-on-one instruction. Be sure to dress in clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Tools and water buckets are provided, but bring a towel if you think you may want one.

We will email you to coordinate a time/date for your workshop. The fee is non-refundable, but you can transfer your spot to a friend if needed. Feel free to contact Zak with any questions you may have.
