Registration is closed

In this workshop we will explore a number of ceramic surface decoration techniques: fine line carving, sgraffito, craft foam stamps and mishima. Jess will be doing a step-by-step demo of how she achieves her fine carved lines employing the use of underglazes and tinted glazes with a likeness to wash watercolor. 

You Will Learn:

  1. A broader knowledge of technical surface approaches

  2. How to most easily execute the techniques
  3. Aesthetic choices for future ceramic projects.

Materials Needed:

  • Leather hard pots or slabs (to use as canvases for surface exploration)

  • Any or all: a needle tool, Craft knife (x-acto or other), Kemper WS wire Stylus (

  • Small sponge

  • Preferred underglazes (Jess likes AMACO velvet underglazes)

  • Paint Brushes (Jess prefers watercolor brushes because they hold more material)

  • Wax resist

The Zoom Demonstration will be recorded and sent out to all registrants if you want to attend but have a scheduling conflict during the live demonstration.

Since this is an online workshop, you will need to have a computer, tablet, or phone that can run video conferencing in a browser or app.
