Masterclass: Screen Printing on Glass – James Cockerill
Thu 9 March- 10:00 am - Fri 10 March- 4:30 pm£400.00
Explore the exciting potential of hand-pulled, silk screen printing onto glass. Using traditional glass paints and enamels, you will build up layers of print to create stunning one-off works of art, perhaps as gifts for family or friends. We will provide you with pre-prepared screens using both stock images and one of your own images. Your designs will be laid over hand-made, mouth blown glass as well as float glass which will be fired in the kiln.
The course will include demonstrations in the use of photoshop to prepare images as well as advice on how to continue using screen printing as a part of your creative practice. No previous glass or print experience is required.
