March 29: Finishing off
We’ve nearly made it to the end of another term – one of our busiest. This week we’ll be trying to finish off any outstanding work from the past few weeks – or if you’re supr-organised, starting something new.
Last Wednesday night, there was another opportunity to see your designs on bangles. And we also got our hands on our photo-ceramic transfers for blank mugs. Here’s a few wee pictures.
March 22: Bangles
The return of another popular class from last year – bangle design.
These pieces of jewellery are fairly narrow so this needs to be factored into your design. But the colours reproduce well in the printing process so photographs and repeating patterns work well.
Designs are printed onto special paper and then go through a heat transfer process in a press to put them onto the bangles. With Wednesday night classes growing in popularity, Angus will be tied up with this process for much of the night. Any digital images you want to use, please email to Angus beforehand so he can prepare the image properly beforehand. High-resolution images are best.
There is a choice of two sizes of bangle: a narrow white one and a wider silver one.
Each printed bangle costs £5.
And just for good measure, there will be a committee meeting.
