Giggleswick Summer School 2010

Giggleswick Summer School,
Water Based Screen Printing and safe, Ceramic Transfer,
North Yorkshire

Monday 26 July - Friday 30 July 2010

Giggleswick is an intense, hands on Summer School, which will
suit teachers and lecturers of the ceramic and printmaking
fraternity. Home printmakers will also benefit from the
experience as we will be using affordable, portable equipment.
This equipment has been designed and built for education and
home studio use. The summer school will be of great help to those
who wish to set up and organise their own screen printing area
using a completely water-based system. Giggleswick is also a solvent
free summer school.

Time will be spent exploring water colour mono printing and
by using fine meshes and sensitive direct stencils, delicate hand
rendered marks will be achieved on paper, fabric and ceramics.
Mark making techniques on textured drawing film are
prominently featured throughout the week and we will be
producing some computer generated imagery using Apple
Macintosh computers and Adobe Photoshop® CS. This will
include monochrome, duo-tone and colour separations output on
affordable laser film. The firing of ceramic pieces using these
images is a feature of the week. White china mugs and tiles are
supplied and last year people also brought their own pieces, i.e.
plates, bowls, teapots...

Giggleswick School is nestled in the Yorkshire Dales, close to Settle
in the North of England, amidst breathtakingly beautiful
countryside. The local pubs in Giggleswick purvey some interesting
ales. Good accommodation and food are included in the price and
arrangements can be made to use the school’s tennis, squash and
fives courts. There is also a swimming pool in Settle. Some evening
walks are usually organised which frequently end up at a local pub.
Last year was a great success and enjoyed by all.

Giggleswick Summer School has become very popular in the UK
and internationally, so book early.

Cost for the week is £540.00 inclusive.
Course tutor: Dave Fortune from the
University of the West of England.
