About the Course
Experience the unique process of enamel screen printing on glass.
The workshop will take place at Manchester Craft and Design Centre, led by resident glassmaker Helen Tiffany.
In this workshop you will be introduced to the principals of screen printing and fused glass. Choose to make either a set of two coasters or three hanging decorations.
Helen will guide you through the process of making stencils before printing on to glass using coloured and metallic glass enamels and adding decoration with powdered glass.
Everything you need to create simple prints will be provided on the day but participants are very welcome to bring inspiration or drawings along to the workshop if you have a specific design in mind.
Your pieces will be fired in the kiln to be collected at a later date from the studio (or posted on for an £8 charge).
This course is suited to those aged 14+,complete beginners or those with some screen printing or fused glass experience.

I really enjoyed this course with Helen who is an excellent teacher and is obviously an expert in her field. Helen demonstrated the screen printing technique to us and was then available for help and advice. There were lots of examples of her beautiful work for ideas and inspiration and lots of beautiful coloured paints to choose from. I found that there was plenty of time to make the design stencils and to use them to produce two coasters /or decorations without rushing. I would recommend this course to anyone who likes crafts and wants to try something different. I'm looking forward to getting my coasters back in the post.
