Regular price $68.00 Save $0.00
Join us for this one-day workshop, whether you're a potter or new to the art entirely, or advanced, and learn how to blur the line between Printmaking and Stoneware Clay.
This workshop is open to anyone ages 12+, no prior experience in printmaking or clay work required.Students will create and keep a stoneware wall hanging, an embossed handbuilt platter, surface designs on a pre-thrown tumbler, and other sample pendants as time allows. This is primarily a handbuilding class, no wheel experience required.
  • Printmaking on High Fire Clay will cover the following topics, their specific tools, and application on stoneware clay surfaces: 
  • Silk screen printing and high-fire mediums
  • Resists & uses while creating transfer prints
  • Embossing textural designs, hump molding, and color relief
  • Impressions with appropriate tools & finish glazes
  • Block printing: creating custom stamps & applique

FEE: $68 covers 10 lbs of free stoneware clay, a sample silk screen design, your custom-carved impression and embossed printing blocks, use of all tools and printing mediums, and firing of up to 5 printed clay projects created in class.

CLASS TIME: This is a 1 session, 4 hour class with multiple dates. Please see pull-down tab for offerings, and join the email newsletter to keep in touch.

SKILL LEVEL: No prior experience with pottery or wheel throwing necessary: all printing on clay methods can be applied to beginning through advanced work. 

STUDENTS BRING: Nothing is required, with all materials provided for within the class fee. If desired, bring any pre-fired bisque pieces that can be second-fired to cone 6 (high fire) for testing prints in class. Test pieces are provided with registration, and are the only pieces that qualify for the free-firing of up to 5 tests.
