By Paul Scott (UK)
April 11th - 15th 2011
Once again Guldagergaard proudly presents Paul Scott and his printmaking course for those with some experience of print and/or ceramics and/or glass. Discover a range of transfer technologies and direct printing or develop a particular aspect of a process or technique.
The “Vitrified Print” courses have formed an important part of the developing knowledge in the field, and are well known for being very informative and hugely enjoyable. Vitrified Print will be structured to encourage the students research interests to take priority over a rigid teaching format. This allows the individuals to develop a technique or process under expert guidance. For those wishing to have a specific program of work, the workshop will concentrate initially on direct drawing - monoprint transfers - then go on to consider the processes of relief and intaglio printing as well as screenprinting and lithography. We will examine the theory of traditional decal production but concentrate on alternative transfer technologies, direct printing and the role of laser printer and photocopier in ceramic and glass transfers.
Emphasis will be placed on developing high quality work and processes using minimal specialist equipment, so that participants will be able to continue using the new technologies and methods in their own studios. The course will include a series of illustrated lectures on printed ceramics, their origins and contemporary roles and functions.
Paul is well known for his research through his books, in particular ceramics and print. He has curated exhibitions and held workshops around the world. In short: He is one of the world's top people in the field of print techniques!
