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.
