Make:Shift:Do at Centre for Fine Print Research, UWE Bristol (Workshop)

Novel Printmaking

The Centre for Fine Print Research will run three parallel workshops, tour, demos and talks.

The other way to print into glass: Shape and print into glass with normal household items at room temperature. This method has its origins in 3D printing but instead of using a 3D printer explore digital methods by creating printing plates with a laser cutter or a CNC mill to print into glass dough. Finished artwork will be fired in a kiln and turned into solid glass. Suitable for all ages and all the ingredients are harmless. 
Cyanotype printing (akaBlueprints) - a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. The process uses two chemicals: ammonium iron(III) citrate and potassium ferricyanide and works by placing objects directly onto coated paper and allowing the action of light to create a silhouette effect.
From CMYK to RGB - learn how to print on black paper using new red, green and blue inks. This may well sound impossible, but the results are remarkable.

Make:Shift:Do is a nationwide programme of craft and innovation workshops taking place on 27 and 28 October 2017
