Printmaking and Clay


Details Fee Breakdown:
Tuition: $455
Material Fee: $85

This workshop will be an introduction to printing on clay using screen printing and relief printing techniques. You’ll learn how to put images into screens without a darkroom and how to carve images and designs in relief blocks. You’ll also learn to print them in a variety of ways, including how to make multi-color images with these screens and reliefs. Images and designs will be used as a means of personal expression to create your work during the workshop. Clay surfaces will be used as canvasses for exploration of printed imagery, design, pattern, color and text. These techniques can be applied to the surfaces of hand built vessels and sculptures or be used as tiles or prints. All levels of experience are welcomed.
