Saturday, November 15th
10:00 am - 4:00 pm
with break for lunch & slideshow
Limit: 12 Students
Instructor: Paul Heroux
Using ceramic vessels as a painting surface, the focus of this workshop will be transfer printing on clay. Paul will demonstrate various methods including the use of laser decals as a manner of surface decoration. Focusing on his box forms, Paul will discuss the combination of these techniques with reduction glazes and firing.
Each participant is encouraged to bring their own artwork or photograph on a CD or USB drive (Please bring your own imagery - the use of copyrighted material is illegal) During the workshop, Paul will demonstrate how to manipulate artwork to prep for printing a laser decal, though imagery for the workshop should initially be high in contrast. In addition to artwork, students are encouraged to bring their own glazed work or commercial plate or object to try transferring with.
