The techniques you can use to add decoration, patterns, and images to your pottery are endless! This three-hour workshop will focus on one technique – using slip transfers to create detailed patterns!

During the workshop, you will make 2 new pieces using slabs and plaster molds and decorate using transfers. All materials are included! Our members will not have to log in the points of the pieces they will make during the workshop.

This workshop will be held outside so please dress accordingly – You may want a hat, light layers, or other items for comfort depending on how warm or sunny the day is.

As part of the workshop, Judith will walk us through her experience using clear glazes on her work and share which clear glaze she prefers. She will bring samples, showing different transfers and the results of different glazes, for us to view.
