Course Outline

Create stunning textile-like patterns on glass using screen-printing and kiln forming techniques with artist Anthony Amoaka-Attah. Brainstorm collective patterns in relation to cultural traditions and learn how to design your own pattern freehand and with the use of computer software.

Anthony will guide you through basic and experimental screen-printing techniques working with glass powders and enamels. Anthony will also cover kiln firing programs to fire your work and share his knowledge of the significance of Ghanaian ‘Kente’ cloth and Adinkra symbology in history.
