Join us for this hands-on workshop exploring the different ways to incorporate photographs, copy-machine images, text, and drawings onto your ceramic artwork. Utilizing iron transfer decals and the toner transfer techniques students will transfer imagery onto work in various stages of the ceramic process. We will also learn how to incorporate color and pattern into the transfer images.
If for some reason the workshop is cancelled by AMOCA enrolled students will recieve a complete refund.
Students will bring pieces in various stages of the ceramic process to transfer imagery onto including: wet clay, leather hard, and glaze fired (any temperature range is acceptable). In addition students may bring imagery they have collected including photos, magazine pictures, drawings, clip art, or sketches (high contrast works best). Text may be used but will need to be reversed for the toner transfer process.
Detailed information will be sent to enrolled students prior to the workshop.
