Al has agreed to lead an all day workshop where seven lucky participants will learn to make a Sgraffito platter. Sgraffito is a form of decoration made by scratching through a surface to reveal a lower layer of contrasting color.
Each participantt should bring at least one piece of 2”x10”x10” kiln dried hardwood. Cherry or mahogany are recommended but maple or poplar will also work well. A 1/2” bowl gouge and 1” scraper are suggested. Carving and texturing tools should be brought by anyone who has them. The club will provide lunch, the other supplies, and supplemental tools. The cost per person is $130.00.
All participants must bring and wear a face shield.
