  • Course description

    Immerse yourself into the world of printmaking, each week you will learn a variety of techniques and printing methods and will develop imagery through the traditional ‘Fine Art’ process of ‘Intaglio Printing’ as well as experimenting with ‘Relief Printing’. Techniques covered are mono printing or monotype, lino, collograph and wood engraving.

    You will be able to use a variety of imagery for this course, this could be taken from photographs, to a simple hand drawn sketch, or perhaps you wish to draw your inspiration from the work of the great artists throughout the decades. Whichever you wish to use, each print you produce will be completely individual.

    The more experienced printmaker can continue to excel using our traditional, well equipped printmaking workshop in order to hone and practice their techniques as well as learning the new exciting non-toxic printmaking techniques such as solar plate etching, photo etching, multi plate, viscosity and plate lithography.

    Whatever your level you will build on your creative design skills and explore the world of image making through printmaking. Throughout the course you will have access to an extensive range of printing presses in the studio.
