Held in Heath's Mission District tile factory, this pairing of workshops will introduce, develop and enhance skills that will help conquer any creative challenge. Participants have the option to spend one full day each with master lettering artist Ken Barber and master screen printer David Dodde, or may sign up for just one workshop.
Lettering Workshop with Ken Barber
Presented in Heath's bright and airy ceramics studio, Ken's one-day session will provide a detailed introduction to formal and informal script styles as well as trademark House Industries tips, tricks and lettering recipes. Participants will hone their drawing skills as they create one-of-a-kind hand-rendered wordmarks by referencing various tools, techniques and models. In addition to a comprehensive slide presentation, drawing demonstration, and helpful exercises, participants will receive one-on-one personal instruction as they acquire a practical foundation for drawing and utilizing script lettering in assorted design applications.
Screen Printing Workshop with David Dodde
House Industries screen printing virtuoso David Dodde will spend a day sharing his three decades of screen printing experience and expertise derived from bringing ridiculous House Industries ideas to life. Participants will explore innovative techniques and subtleties of the perfect pull by working with paper and wood objects. Since Heath's working tile factory is conveniently located in the building, participants will also have the unique opportunity to print glaze on ceramic tiles that will then be fired. The screen printing workshop will be held in Heath's eclectic Boiler Room gallery.
House Party at Heath
All workshop participants will receive free admission to an evening event at Heath Ceramics on June 5 that features a lively lecture by House Industries founders Rich Roat and Andy Cruz followed by House's month-long exhibition and pop up shop opening. California's own Mattson 2 will help kick off this event with a live performance in Heath's Boiler Room gallery.
Open to all skill levels. Each session is limited to 18 participants. Please email for group discounts for four or more people. Please email or call House Industries at 800-888-4390 (302-234-2356) with questions on this workshop.
