Tile Making Workshop

July 16 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Saturday / July 16 / 1:00-3:00 pm

Richard Spiller, a local potter from Wisconsin will present a tile- making workshop at the Winona Arts Center. The technique is called “sgraffito (in Italian meaning to scratch) and is a technique produced by applying a drawing to hard red clay pottery piece and then scratching off parts of the layer to create contrasting images and patterns to reveal the clay color underneath. The tile is 8‘’ square and a simple design works best for this project. Spiller will fire the tile twice and return it to the participants. Richard Spiller has been a potter and a ceramic artist for 50 years and has taught in Europe, Finland, Latvia and Russia as well as universities in the US.

Cost: $30 per person. Checks should be payable to the Winona Arts Center and paid prior to the class. Checks can be mailed to WAC at 228 East 5th, Winona, MN 55987.
