As a result of being awarded a professional development bursary from The Artists Information Company, I was able to explore the possibilities of screen printing directly onto unfired and fired clay. This bursary was to give me the opportunity to further develop my mark making skills by layering another printmaking technique into my ceramic surfaces.
I chose to work alongside Vicky Shaw, an established freelance maker who specialises in ceramic print. Our time together was to be spent in two, three day workshop blocks, with time between these sessions left free for me to explore and experiment with the new techniques. This was to be one-to-one tuition, specifically tailored to my requirements and existing skill level; I could hardly wait to begin!
