In this workshop, you will learn the process of transferring a wide variety of imagery to your ceramics pieces and learn about using engobes (also known as slips) combined with Chinese rice paper transfers and Intaglio flexible rubber stamp mats to create clay fabrics. Time permitting, we will also touch on combing through colored engobes, using paper resists, texturing with fabrics, and impressing carved stamps & roulettes as well as leaves to the clay slab surface.  Learn about all these techniques to create rich, beautiful designs on clay in this single-session workshop.
