Sgraffito on Fused Glass

November 4 – 5 / 1pm – 3pm
Decorate clay surfaces with repeatable images and learn about printmaking in this special workshop. All experience levels are welcome.
Session I — Linocut Printmaking:
Design and transfer or directly draw an image onto a soft linoleum block and carve it into the block, while learning safety and tool usage. Students will use their carved blocks to print their image on paper first to test or make a proof of their image.
Session II — Printing on Ceramics
Students will prepare clay for printing by kneading and flattening the clay into a smooth sheet or slab. Students will then learn how to mix an “ink” made of ceramic materials that will be fired permanently onto the clay slab. The “ink” will then be rolled onto the carved block the students made in session one and applied to the slab to create a finished print. Pieces will be fired after the workshop for pick-up.
