Learn to put images on silk screens using the photosensitive direct emulsion process and make ceramic decals. Decals may be applied and fired onto ceramics as well as enameled metal and glass. Decals may also be applied to any smooth surface as a decorative element. The same basic silk screen techniques can be used for printing patterns onto fabrics, such as logos and designs onto t-shirts. Topics will include printing directly onto fired as well as unfired clay. Discussion and demonstration subjects include multi color printing, color separation, applications to high fire processes and hand coloring B&W decals with overglazes and lusters. The course is designed to be low-tech and uses no sophisticated apparatus allowing the participant to continue screening images at home or studio. Participants will create their own decals and receive a screen and squeegee for later use at their leisure. Ceramic experience is not required. Space is limited. On site camping available.
