Printing on Clay Workshop with Mary Fischer

July 27th-28th  10am-4pm each day

 

All skill levels welcome!

We will use mason stains and slips to learn several techniques for printing on clay.  We will also learn to make ceramic Ink used for printing etching plates, linoleum block, and laser photocopies. Some of these techniques are used by printmakers who use paper and a press. We are translating these techniques to clay. Using ceramic Ink, we can print photographs using a lithographic process.  Using slips we can do the equivalent of making mono prints. 

Participants are encouraged to bring images they wish to work with (photographs, drawings, linoleum blocks, etching plates, or laser photographs). 

 

$350 includes instruction, materials, and a handmade lunch each day.
