Learn to sketch on clay with specialty carving tools and expand your knowledge of surface design. In this workshop students will explore both basic and advanced sgraffito and carving techniques to create dynamic imagery. We will begin by using leather hard tiles to practice a range of methods, then move on to hand-built forms upon which students can incise more intricate, planned designs. An interest in drawing is encouraged. All levels welcome!

She focuses primarily on ceramic sculpture but often includes flame-worked glass details in her pieces. A 2016-17 resident ceramic artist at the Mendocino Art Center, Alissa’s work centers on the surreal, inexplicable, and occasionally grotesque.
