Workshop: Clay Stamps ~ Focus: Stamp-making & Stamping
Clay Stamps, LIVE Saturday, July 16th, 1 -3 PM EDT. Recording (w. edited closed captioning) available Wed, July 20th.
Space for the live participation is limited so signing up sooner than later is recommended. Purchasing for the live component ends Fri, July 15th at 5 PM EDT.
If you're interested in designing and making your own stamps, making a stamp for signing your ceramic work, playing with an easily repeatable motif &/ or image, adding another element of detail or design to your work, and more ~ I think you'll enjoy this!
About: This will be a how-to presentation of my signature methods for how I make my stamps as well as use my stamps. Demonstrations will include making a clay stamp start to finish, making roulettes and sprigs, and actually using stamps to stamp vertical, thrown forms & slabs at suede and early leather-hard. I will show & tell a few of my favorite stamps among the dozens I use regularly too.
Discussions will include timing, tools, working with a plaster slab, stamping results on porcelain & stoneware, plus design & decoration ideas & goals, and as always, ergonomics.
Who this is for: Beginners to Advanced, Throwers, Hand-builders & Sculptors ~ all are welcome. If you’ve got your fingers in clay and are interested in adding another layer of texture and/ or decoration to your work, I’ve got you!
Format: This informative demo will be recorded live on Zoom with the recording made available within four days after to both the live attendees and those unable to attend. Participant audio & video will be off during the duration of the live portion with questions & convos primarily over the Zoom chat feature, which will be moderated.
Access: Each recording will be accessible for 3 months on a private Recording Page for the personal education of the purchaser*. The video recording includes the option for closed captioning which I edit for accuracy adding a couple days to the release date. The Recording Page has the video as well as links and images to items discussed during the live presentation, and the ability to leave comments & questions. So whether you attend live or later, you won’t miss a thing!
