WORKSHOP Friday 22nd November 2pm-4.30pm Screenprint Sgraffito decorations
Friday 22nd November 2pm - 4.30pm
Join Helen on this new course to create your own glass decorations inspired by natural forms and the beautiful colours around us this autumn.
During the session we will work with enamels to produce painterly prints onto glass using a natural colour palette. You will learn how to make stencils to print with and use the sgraffito technique to add fine detail to your design.
You will have the opportunity to make three circular hanging decorations.
This afternoon course will take place at Manchester Craft and Design Centre in a dedicated workshop space. Suited to both beginners and those with experience of glass making or printing, you will be learn the principals of screen printing and fused glass.
Everything you need to create simple prints will be provided on the day but participants are welcome to bring inspiration including your own leaves, drawings or photos along to the workshop if you have a specific design in mind.
Finished pieces will be fired in the kiln to be collected at a later date from the studio, or posted to you for £8. If you wish to collect your finished piece please add the code STUDIOCOLLECT at the checkout to remove the postage fee.
All materials and kiln firings are included in the ticket price and complimentary refreshments will be provided.
