The Vitrified Print – Post-Conference Workshops and Demonstrations by Paul Scott Paul Scott is well known for his research into the graphic nature of ceramic surfaces – through his work, exhibitions, books (Ceramics and Print and Painted Clay) and workshops held around the world. Vitrified Print courses have formed an important part of the developing knowledge in the field, and are well known for being hugely informative and enjoyable. These workshops and demonstrations examine the potential of print processes in ceramics. Vitrified Print 1 – Relief, mono-print and lithography, the principles of transfer technologies:
The course uses drawing, painting, stamps, photocopy and toner resist to explore the principles and possibilities of some of the following: mono-printing, lithography and low-tech ceramic transfers. During workshops participants can produce relatively complex and rich graphic ceramic surfaces by layering, and building on interlinking skills and processes. The possibilities of transferring these techniques to glass can also be explored if there is interest. Materials include paper, laserprint/photocopy, tissue, and plaster as transfer materials with a variety of easily available print media.
May 9 – 13 | $395 + GST | Course # 1553 Vitrified Print 2 – Screen printing – direct and transfer printing:
A second, additional workshop is also offered on screen-printing and ceramics. This examines artwork preparation for screens, principles of ceramic decal making, as well as flexible, waterbased transfer methodologies.
May 16 – 20 | $395 + GST | Course #1554 Workshops will run Monday to Friday from 9 am – 4 pm. All courses include a number of illustrated presentations variously examining practice in the field – involving technical, historical and critical issues.
