Sgraffito is a drawing technique where a sharp tool is used to scratch into a surface to produce drawings with fine lines.
In this workshop sgraffito is used as a painting technique where you scratch through a coloured layer of paint to reveal already painted colours underneath. It is a simple and effective way of experimenting and producing energetic, exciting and sometimes accidental marks in your work.
There will a demonstration in the morning of the various techniques followed by a chance to experiment using different materials, papers and tools. In the afternoon you will have time to produce a work based on what you have learnt.
