Jocelyn Jenkins' Sgraffito Workshop

Check out our workshops page for this course. 

Jocelyn Jenkins is an Ottawa potter who works out of her own studio in Old Ottawa South.  She is a fixture at the Old Firehall Pottery Studio where she has shared her love of clay with children of all ages for many years. Jocelyn is also a functional potter whose work can be seen several times a year in shows and sales in the area.  Through her work she attempts to forge a connection with her audience.  Although her work is primarily functional, she attempts to create a narrative that will draw people into her world – a world where a turtle or a snail might join you for coffee, and thereby provoke a smile.

 This workshop will cover some of the elements that go into making a successful design before launching into a hands-on demonstration of sgraffito techniques.  Students will explore sgraffito techniques using both slips and underglazes on test tiles and larger pieces in this all-day workshop.
