Handwork 102 W State St
Try your hand at decorating a clay holiday ornament using Handwork artisan Colleen McCall’s signature technique, sgraffito.
First, participants will hand paint brilliant under-glaze colors on a white porcelain surface. Then, draw through the layers of color to reveal the dark brown clay beneath. Use one of Colleen’s motifs or design your own. The drop in workshop is $5 per ornament. First come, first serve. Ornaments will be fired in the artist’s kiln and available for pick up as early as November 12!
