Printing on Clay Workshop with Cameron Fraser | Takeawei Studio Torquay

We are excited to present our first visiting artist workshop at the Takeawei studio. Renowned for his print making skills, artist Cameron Fraser now resides in Spain, so this is a very rare opportunity for us. Cameron will be sharing his knowledge of print making and showing us how to apply designs to one of his new loves, ceramics!

Suitable for beginners or more advanced students. This is a hands on workshop, make a plate or tiles and decorate using photocopies, oxides and printing mediums to apply prints to your ceramics.

Demonstrations by Cameron will be followed by application to your own pieces. Make your own slab built plates, or decorative tiles. Apply your own print (or one of the supplied designs) to your piece using print techniques that Cameron Fraser has perfected in his own practice. This is a technique that has so many possibilities to expand your practice by applying original images to your work. All pieces will be glazed and fired, suitable for use as functional tableware or wall tiles. 

The work shop runs for 2.5 hours and has limited places. At the completion of the day your work will be dried, bisque fired and glazed for your collection in approximately 4 weeks, you will be notified by email when your pieces are ready for collection. We can also arrange postage of your piece on the day for $10 within Australia.
