Students learn the historically rich and colorful technique of majolica glazing, a process where colorful imagery is painted over white glaze ware. This wonderful ceramic technique is similar to watercolor painting on paper and allows participants to treat the surface of the pieces as a canvas. Each participant can paint up to 4 ice cream bowls.
Pronto Plate Printing
Experiment with the pronto plate process and create multiples of your own unique print in a couple of hours. This easy and accessible method has evolved out of the much more involved and traditional lithography process and elicits similar results. Play with mark-making, linework, textures and color in this fun and exploratory workshop.
The Cyanotype is a 19th-century process using a light-sensitive emulsion, coated on paper and exposed in the sun or a UV light box. This unique experience guides participants to better understand the photographic process and create a one-of-a-kind blueprint. As an option, participants may use found objects or bring images/negatives to scan and create digital negatives for exposure.
Learn the basics of spoon carving in this fun introductory workshop. Participants learn how to cut the rough shape of a spoon on the bandsaw, and work by hand to carve creations with the assistance of the woodshop staff. Everyone walks away with a spoon and some hands-on experience with wood.
3D Printed Portraits
Digital Fabrication Studio
3-D scanning is a fun and accessible entry into Digital Fabrication. Participants learn how to use a 3D scanner and work together to scan each other. The studio support staff then demonstrate how to process the scans and set them up for the 3D printer. While 3D prints take a few hours to complete, participants ultimately walk away with their bust or figurine printed in plastic.
