In this workshop the participants will explore different methods of surface decoration with a focus on print on clay. The workshop will cover a variety of techniques using slips and underglazes (ranging from low tech mono-printing including tissue transfer and relief printing to screen-printing) as well as inglaze and overglaze decals. The applications of these techniques are suitable for wheel-thrown and slab-built forms fired at a variety of temperatures.
The workshop is best suited to intermediate/ advanced levels, however no previous experience with print-making is necessary.

Since graduating from Alberta College and design in 2004, Cathy Terepocki has been developing her career as a ceramic artist. She currently has several lines of functional dishes and jewellery that layer contemporary methods of hand painting and printmaking on top of clean and modern hand-thrown and hand-built forms. This work is sold at shops and galleries throughout Canada and the United States, and has been featured in books, blogs, magazines and newspapers, including Galleries West, Western Living, Uppercase, the Globe and Mail and Canadian House and Home. In 2016 she was awarded Designer of the Year in the Maker category by Western Living Magazine.
In conjunction with production practice, Cathy has been developing a portfolio of one-of-a-kind art pieces and conceptual ceramic projects for which several grants have been awarded. These projects have been shown in galleries throughout North America. In 2007 she co-founded a mobile gallery showcasing the work of Canadian artists and designers.
Cathy had had the opportunity to share the joys of working with clay and has taught ceramic printing classes at art centres and post-secondary institutions as well as clay classes for kids and adults in her community. After a four-year stint on the prairies she has returned to beautiful British Columbia and is living in Yarrow with her husband and 3 children.
