Print And Clay

July 26, 2020 – August 1, 2020

Thomas Lucas and David Trost

During this workshop students will experiment with drawing and printing images on clay by hand using a range of techniques including screenprinting, relief and lithography. You will utilize simple tools to develop image and text compositions on both flat and curved surfaces. Using low fire clays, drawing and transfer of images through printing will allow for participants to create tiles, vessels and sculptural form. This can serve as a canvas for color, shape, mark-making, photographic images and pattern. Participants will use different clay slips, stains, and modified underglaze and glazes on mainly low-temp clay bodies with the firing done in electric kilns. Expect a wide range of results. Open to all skill levels.
