This workshop will combine traditional printmaking techniques on clay including mono-printing on plaster with slip-cast clay, silk screening, stencils, laser-transfer decals, embossing, and relief printing. Areas to be explored will be creating a vocabulary of imagery, narrative and composition onto both hand-built and wheel-thrown forms. All techniques can be applied to work within any ceramic firing range and will be presented in a way that is easy to replicate in one's own studio. Historic and contemporary examples of artists who combine printmaking with ceramics will shown.
Fees: Enrolled in Course: $50, not enrolled: $100
