VIRTUAL: Clay Stamp Making & Texture Queen Texture Mats

3:30-5:30PM PT / 6:30-8:30PM ET

Instructor:  Lynn Wood

In this virtual workshop, using Zoom video conferencing, Lynn will demonstrate a variety of simple effective techniques to create a wide variety of texture stamps and rollers. You will be able to make stamps and rollers unique to you. Even if you have made your own tools before, Lynn will have some surprises to share. These can be combined together and with other texture tools you may have to embellish the surface of both thrown and handbuilt work.

Learn how to use along with the “queen’s” texture mats. Your stamps and mats can be used beside one another and also stamps can be printed over mat images to create unique textures. As well as get a number of tips and techniques for using the texture mats to create wonderful surfaces on your work.  Using your tools right away, we will make a dish with making sprigs from your new unique tools. This dish will serve to fire all your new goodies in. Come join in to see what simple quirky tips and techniques Lynn will share to take your work to the next level.  Template included.

The demonstration will last for approximately 1.75  hours, after which there will be some time reserved for more in-depth, live Q&A. All workshops will be hosted by the Sonoma Ceramics staff; participants will be encouraged to ask questions using the chat forum in Zoom, and the host will communicate these questions to the instructor during her demo.

Many participants choose to observe the virtual workshop and work later, but you may also work alongside the instructor during the demo. All students will receive the Zoom recording of the workshop to watch at their convenience for two weeks after the workshop.


Participants must pre-register for the workshop Zoom access & tool list. Once you register, the links will be in your confirmation email.
