  • $80.00

Our host is award-winning Maine ceramic artist Tim Christensen, an avid educator and environmentalist who focuses on Sgraffito in porcelain. Of the art form, which is accomplished by decoratively scoring through a layer of slip to reveal the clay below, Tim advises, "Draw around something to depict it." Imagery of Maine nature awaits your interpretation...

In this unique plein air class, participants will learn to pack and carry everything needed to make gorgeous sgraffito etchings on porcelain by moonlight in one of Maine's many beautiful locations.

The session will be held in the evening close to the full Snow Moon on Saturday, March 20 from 6pm-10pm. Let there be light and a lot of lines!

Bring your own raw porcelain piece to work with, or purchase a form by Tim starting at $20.

We will cover the forms with slip, fix them, and then learn to capture the many textures and values we see in Maine in Winter. Working in black and white to allow for focus on value scales and quality drafting. 

Texture, depth of design, negative space, ceramic and sgraffito history, and studio mobility/resilience will be among the covered topics.

Participants should dress for the weather as the class will be held outside. This educational event will be an experience through which art and adventure meet! 

Join us in The Good Supply's dooryard at 4pm on February 27, and we will venture into the great coastal woods of Maine together. No experience is necessary, and participants age 16 and above are welcome.

The Good Supply will serve as the central meeting place for the workshop and after party as well as the pick-up location for pieces fired by Tim. (Tim will fire all forms made by him.) Shipping can be arranged if pick-up is not desired. Participants who bring their own forms should plan on firing them.  

Please contact Catherine at c.walton@thegoodsupply.org with questions. The Good Supply's address is 2106 Bristol Rd. Pemaquid, ME.
