Printing on Clay and Ceramics
A four hour day time class to experiment with a variety of techniques to print on clay. This class is an informative and fun way to learn new techniques of surface decoration on unfired clay, bisque-ware and glazed ceramics.
The session gives students an opportunity to try the following techniques:
– Silk screen printing with slip and underglaze on clay slabs for hand building and press moulding and tiles.
– The use of enamel decals for glazed ceramics (students can use our own glazed tiles or bring their own glazed pieces to be embellished)
– Powder mono-printing, where we use potter’s tissue to transfer drawn images onto clay or fired bisque using oxides and underglaze
– Mono-printing with plaster, where students can paint slip onto plaster slabs or even carve into plaster to print images onto wet clay
Each technique will be clearly demonstrated and students will be given the opportunity to try each method.
This course is ideal for those who have a basic knowledge of ceramics and would like to expand their skill base for future use in the studio. All materials will be provided.
If students want to print on their own existing work, please message us to ensure the pieces will be suitable for the processes offered.
