A five week course in screen printing on glass techniques
Thursdays from 28 February
18.00 – 21.00
5 weeks / £125
Artist: Jade Tapson
This five week course offers participants a comprehensive introduction into screen printing onto glass. Through a combination of demonstrations and practical application you will learn how to select suitable imagery, coat a screen with photosensitive emulsion, screen-printing techniques, suitable enamels too kiln firing cycles and how to fuse the printed layers of glass together.
Over the course of the five weeks participants will create a number of glass prints using their own drawings and images. By the end of the course participants will have gained a good understanding of screen-printing onto glass and details of the types of equipment and materials required.
In preparation for the workshop, spend some time collecting half a dozen images that could be used to create your own line drawings, which will be transferred on to acetate. Please bring any imagery you wish to reference printed on paper ready for the workshop. Alternatively please email them as digital jpeg files a week before the course to firstname.lastname@example.org
