The art teachers also had a workshop transferring prints on jewellery boxes:
Monday, January 5, 2015
Students in Year 9 and 10 at Cabramatta made plates using plastic party plate templates. After they were bisqued, the students then tried out some silkscreen printing onto the plates, using greaseproof paper and gift wrap tissue paper. This is in preparation for making vases.

Here are some images of the Merrylands art students from Ms Ollivain's Year 10 class making some simple pinch pots, which they have put some blue slip down, and then carving into them.
|Some carved using pencils, others used small metal loop tools.|

We have painted underglaze on some of these boxes, and I've shown them how to use silkscreens to print imagery on the sides...
Here I am demonstrating throwing on my Shimpo which I took into Fairvale.

|Some of the student's fired works. Using Japanese tissue transfer designs sold by Blackwattle Pottery.|
|Good work!! Lovely bowl...|
Some images of my demonstration of how to use silkscreens to transfer images onto ceramic forms.
|A demonstration of screening directly onto a clay tile. The clay is leather hard. It should be smooth and not sticky and you can simply screen a slip, or an underglaze on the clay tile.|
|Applying the tissue (just use lunch wrap paper) to the back of the bisqued pot. Press firmly. Sometimes a squirt from a water spray bottle on the pot beforehand, will help dampen the clay surface enough to take the image better.|
|Ms Haberecht also shows the students how it's done!|
