Printing on Clay Workshop, Sturt Craft Centre.

A week after I arrived back from my long residency in Scandinavia, I was rushed off to Sturt to conduct a five day 'Printing on Clay' workshop. It was a great way to get rid of jet lag!
We spent a couple of days exposing images to screens (using the Gocco and photo emulsion method). Followed by some fun days printing (and maybe one not so fun half day printing decals, foo foo smelly).
I sometimes feel we almost need 10 days to cover all the possibilities associated with printing on clay but we managed to pile in at least eight different techniques during the week. The techniques ranged from Intaglio printing, lino cut printing, monoprinting, to various silk screen printing techniques.
We even managed to squeeze in a decal firing!
