What's Your Number? Ceramic Address Tiles

Tuesdays, August 8th-22nd, 2023


Fee: $100.00 (Non- Member)


Come and make a set of address numbers for your home with MCAC Instructor Erin Furimsky! This fun and easy hand-building ceramic intensive is open to all levels. Beautiful and uniquely handcrafted address tiles made by you are a wonderful addition to your home. The technique of sgraffito will be used to create the numbers and additional patterns or graphics as a border. Sgraffito is a decorating technique produced by applying layers of color (underglazes) to leather hard pottery and then scratching off parts of the layers to create contrasting images, patterns, and textures and reveal the clay color underneath. You will choose 1-3 colors of underglaze. Each tile measures between 4-6 inches (you decide from a few templates) and once fired they can be glued, hung, or screwed for mounting.

*All materials including clay, glazes, tools and kiln firings included in fee.

Mission Statement: We encourage and promote the appreciation, study, cultivation, development, and practice of art for the benefit of all the people, cultures and communities of McLean County.
