Carrie Iverson, Master Instructor.
Explore this versatile printmaking method for transferring images from a Xerox or laser print. The technique uses principles from lithography and can be used to print drawings, photographs, found objects- anything that can be photocopied! This versatile method can be adapted to a variety of materials and requires minimal space and equipment- perfect for the home studio! Over the three-day class you will create a variety of samples exploring the potentials of the process, including using reactive glasses to widen your color palette. No prerequisites.
Note: This technique differs from a decal process in that it results in glass “prints” composed of fine glass powder fired onto a glass sheet.
