Make An Impression with Duncan Sherwood-Forbes - Santa Monica

$250.00 Regular price


Turn your line drawings into stamps and learn how to utilize Duncan’s unique style of impression-making in your ceramic practice! During this workshop, students will have their line drawings transformed into stamps, and learn how to incorporate stamping and other texturizing methods into the creation of a slab-constructed vessel.

Students will also learn how to incorporate slips and underglazes into their work via both Mishima (clay inlay) and Sgraffito (carving) techniques. Additionally, Duncan will give a demonstration of various glazing treatments that will highlight the beautiful textures and images students will create.

Topics covered: stamp making, impression making, textures, mishima, sgraffito, hand-building.

 Open to all skill levels, however basic drawing experience is highly suggested. 

*Drawing guidelines will be emailed out ahead of time, and drawings will be due 1 week prior to class for approval and stamp production.
