Artist: Jade Tapson
This one day course offers participants a comprehensive introduction into screen printing onto glass. Through a combination of demonstrations and practical application you will learn how to select suitable imagery, coat a screen with photosensitive emulsion, screen-printing techniques, suitable enamels to kiln firing cycles and how to fuse the printed layers of glass together.
By the end of the course participants will have created a few unique glass printed pieces and gain a good understanding of screen-printing onto glass and details of the types of equipment and materials required.
Please note: Items created in this course will require firing and need time to cool and are not immediately available to take away with you on the day. If you have chosen to collect your work, the collection date will be confirmed on the day of your experience. Alternatively you can arrange for your items to be delivered.

In preparation for the workshop, spend some time collecting half a dozen images you would like to use. Alternatively bring your own line drawings which can be transferred on to acetate. For a screen print to work well they must be black & white high contrast images. Please email them as digital jpeg files about 20x15cm size at 300 dpi a week before the course to firstname.lastname@example.org
