Custom Clay Stamp Workshop
Custom Clay Stamp Workchop
A custom ‘chop’ or signature stamp is an important item for the advancing potter. Join Makerspace Design Lab coordinator Vaughn Warren for a guided workshop to make your very own!
Up to 12 participants will be guided through the process of laser etching almost any simple small image in wood and mounting it on dowel handle, creating a stamp suitable for embossing in clay, polymers and other malleable materials.
Note: this is NOT an ink stamp.
Participants are required to bring their image either as polished pen on paper drawing or as a digital file on thumb drive (jpg).
Pen on paper will be scanned and vectorized.
Maximum size of stamp: 1" diameter

When I try to polish my pen on paper drawing, the ink keeps smearing.
@kile perhaps try Hungarianing or Croatianing your pen and ink, instead of Polishing? The Polish can be tricky…
And remember: when European, you’re Russian to Finnish.

Vaughn, not sure where to book the spot for members on the forum? Is this good enough?
@Vaughn I’d like to join this too, I’m not sure exactly where I sign up… here? 😜
A few spots left for Thursday night workchop - free for members!
The stamp workshop went great - 7 people made their own custom clay stamps in 3 sizes.
Great to see people introduced to this process - endless applications!
That was a great workshop, Vaughn! It gave me plenty of ideas to chew on, and I got more just by looking around the workshops. I’ll probably just start a thread of ideas, since they just keep coming!0
It is by descending into the pits of one’s personal hells to conquer them and make them part of one’s strength that one realizes what is called “true power.”
