Ceramics course: Silk screening and monoprinting
|Location:||Kumu education centre|
On 11.10, 18.10 and 25.10, 5–7 pm
Three-part ceramics course.
The contemporary art exhibition The Archaeology of the Screen at Kumu is based on Lev Manovich’s treatment of the screen as a window on a new reality that does not necessarily have to present moving pictures, thus including works of art that exploit the techniques of photography. Both silk screening and monoprinting are methods for transferring photos onto different materials.
Silk screening is a printing technique in which the image is transferred onto a surface, in our case on clay, using a silk screen. For printing, we will use coloured engobes, soft clay slurry and a mixture of colour pigments.
Monoprinting with an oxide drawing is a single-impression printing technique in which the drawing is first made on a glass plate covered with an oxide. Then, the resulting graphic image is transferred to a clay plate. These methods can be used for straight-walled items, e.g. cylindrical objects, flat plates and boxes.

The course will be held in Estonian. Questions and explanations are also possible in Russian and English.
