We had the lovely Anne Gibbs coming in for the day on a little workshop on print making based on the idea and concept for our field project Tea for Two and potentially it could develop into the surface of our tea sets. She showed us on this first session some basic printing technique such as the subtraction, addition methods and some line work using a range of found objects and tools. These principles could then be translated into clay which Anne will show us a bit more on next weeks session. This workshops is also a continuity to our technician Caroline Tyler demonstration last term, where she went through some techniques, but we didn’t have the opportunity to get our hands dirty so its great that we had this workshop with Anne.
Through out the day Anne would show us one or two technique and then we had the opportunity to try them for ourselves. He tried a range of techniques and then after we experimented and could see the potential of each technique we could start laying techniques creating interesting prints.
The are some really interesting results here and can’t wait to develop these techniques into clay on next weeks session. Really like the result of the tea bags resembling the beauty of cells and could potentially see these further developed. Consumption of tea?
Both Anne and Caroline suggested us to look into Paul Scotts books on print and ceramics for next weeks sessions, so yeah, can’t wait.
