Scandinavian Screen-Printing on Glass

Tomas Colbengtson

In this workshop, students will learn step by step how to screen-print photo-based images on glass using enamels. Students will quickly deepen their knowledge and move to advanced prints and finished works. Everything will be covered from the selection and production of your original imagery to its translation into a screen and then onto a glass surface. From there, we will discuss kiln strategies and methods for firing enamels onto the surface to create a beautiful and durable finish. Tomas will present both widely known techniques and his personal innovations. This course is great for any level of glass or image making experience.
