In addition to Ceramics CPD we’ve had the pleasure of two workshops delivered by artists Mark Oliver and Mark Long aka Pencil+Help.
Mark and Mark planned and delivered an initial workshop based on stencil making and printing for a 2 colour screen print. Working from simple geometric shapes THAT teachers created 2 layer designs and re-capped pulling screens.
Their second workshop focused on photo emulsion transfer using a UV unit to set the screens in order to create a longer-lasting stencil. The boys showed us how to coat, expose and rinse the screens ready to print.
We then printed our stencil onto bespoke posters designed by Pencil and Help for our workshop:
Pencil and Help tailored their two workshops to the specific needs of our teachers and this made both parts really successful. We hope to work with them further in the future, this time with students. We would highly recommend this duo for work in schools, galleries and for other one off projects.
