May 16, 2015- Easy Image Transfer for Ceramics, Gainesville, FL.

Computers and clay may seem worlds apart, but advances in digital software and home printer technology have made computers an important bridge between clay and image-based art forms. Participants in this one day workshop will learn to prepare digital images (photographs, drawings, paintings, or digital) for simple image transfer techniques including slip, stain and underglaze transfer using photocopies, silk screen stencils for slips, underglaze and glaze, and iron toner decals. There is an image transfer technique for every step in the ceramic process and every firing technique. This class will cover image manipulation and cutting-edge ceramic techniques in a way that is accessible to students of every level, but some knowledge of Photoshop and clay is suggested.

Participants should bring a collection of digital images they are interested in putting on ceramics, a flash drive, a notebook, several soft leather hard pots or tiles, several bisque pieces, and a couple of glaze fired pieces. A laptop with image manipulation software such as Photoshop will be necessary. We have a limited supply of extra computers, if you do not have your own, please contact us to reserve a computer.

The workshop at the Charlie Cummings Gallery (2040 NW 6th St, Gainesville, FL) runs from 9am to 5pm on Saturday, May 16th. Lunch will be provided.
