Description

ScreenEasy products are suitable for use with any type of glass so would suit anyone who kiln-forms glass using Bullseye, Spectrum or float glass, although we will work with Bullseye on the day. Students will make a small project incorporating screen printed glass, which will be fired and can be collected or sent on to you (postal charge will apply). No previous experience is necessary and all materials and tools are provided.

Tea, coffee and soft drinks are provided. Please bring along a packed lunch which – weather permitting – we can enjoy in the beautiful garden. We are next door to the award winning ‘The Ethicurean’ restaurant so you could pre-book a lunch table there if you wish.

Cancellation of a class booking up to one month before the class date will receive a full refund. After that date a 50% refund will be given up to one week before the class date. If we have less than a weeks’ notice we will be unable to refund you.

    I did Becky’s ScreenEasy and imagery in your glass workshop last year. It was really informative and covered lots of methods/mediums to use with screens onto glass and importantly how to prepare an image to make a screen positive. It is set in a beautiful place and was a really fun day. There was a good balance between instruction and information/ demonstration and hands on practice. Well worth the trip from London!

    I booked on to one of the “ScreenEasy and imagery in your glass” one-day courses at the beginning of May 2019. The studio is located in the peaceful and pretty surrounds of the Barley Wood Walled Garden out at Wrington near Bristol. There were two of us on the course on this occasion and Becky put us at our ease immediately with the offer of a hot drink and an Introduction to what we were to cover. This included some background information and then a detailed explanation of the range of processes involved in the use of the ScreenEasy approach. It is extremely flexible and can be applied onto glass using a range of mediums from glass powder to etching cream to enamels. The exciting part came when we had the opportunity to try out the use of etching cream with a screen print onto glass. Like magic, within minutes we had a beautiful detailed image on a mirror ready to take away and frame at home. Becky explained clearly the different types of screens and approaches suitable for each medium. We then had a detailed explanation from Markina about the best technique for getting images set up for production of your own custom screen. This was fascinating and opened up a whole world of possibilities. The final part of the day provided us with the opportunity to play around with a variety of images and generate our own enamel print on glass which was fired, slumped and then shipped home to us within the next couple of days.
    Overall, a very friendly, relaxed and fun-filled one-day workshop. It had the right combination of information, relaxed conversation, demonstrations and opportunities to have a try yourself. Becky and Markina have a wealth of experience and knowledge to share and make you feel very welcome, no matter what stage you are at. The day passed all too quickly but has opened my eyes to another exciting avenue for experimenting with the marvellous artistic medium that is glass.
