Printmaking is a process of transferring images, text and photographs from one place to another. Traditional printmaking techniques use inked plates, presses and fabric stretched on to a frame in the case of screenprinting.  This course will experiment with printing images on clay by hand using a range of techniques including screenprinting, relief and lithography. Utilizing simple tools to transfer images will allow for the creation of tiles, vessels and sculpture. Use different clay slips, stains, and modified underglaze and glazes on mainly low-temp clay bodies with the firing done in electric kilns and Raku. Expect a wide range of images, texture, pattern, and color.
