Family Activity: Scratchy Sgraffito
Ladi Kwali and Phoebe Collings-James are artists featured in our exhibition Body Vessel Clay: Black Women, Ceramics & Contemporary Art. Join us to learn about the sgraffito techniques used in their work. ‘Sgraffito’ comes from an Italian word meaning ‘to scratch’ and involves scratching through a top layer to reveal different colours, textures and materials underneath. Inspired by the works in our exhibition, make your own sgraffito picture using wax crayons and paper.
This workshop will take place in our Education Room, which will be signed from the entrance. Please try to arrive at the Education Room within your booked timeslot (stated on your Eventbrite ticket). We recommend participants have a look at the exhibition before attending the workshop to see the inspiration for your own creation! A family trail will be available to guide you around the exhibition, which is open from 10:00am.
Please note that we will have COVID-19 safety measures in place during this session. Adults, and children over 11 years old, should wear a face covering when attending this session, unless exempt.
