Clay and Printmaking – Fall Weekend Session
October 22-24, 2021
Paul Andrew Wandless
Intro to Printmaking on Clay
This workshop will be an introduction to printing on clay using screenprinting, monoprinting, and relief printing techniques. We’ll put images onto a screen without a darkroom, carve relief blocks with gouges, and make multicolor images with these screens and blocks. We’ll also make clay monotypes on plaster bats using transparent and opaque underglazes. We’ll cover mixing and modifying underglazes for use with each printing method so you can continue to explore these techniques after the workshop. No firing. All levels; beginners encouraged.
