Explore a range of printmaking techniques on our beginners’ six-week evening course.

Learn how to use the tools, materials and equipment to get started in printmaking. You will be guided step by step through the following processes in a friendly studio environment:

● Monoprinting – using stencils, shapes, pattern and simple drawing techniques you’ll produce a series of different A4 prints using our etching presses.

● Collograph – using tape of different texture and shapes you’ll build your own collograph plate to produce an edition A4 prints.

● Lino Printing – using soft cut lino, you’ll carve your own block to produce an edition of A4 prints using our Albion press.

● Screen Printing – using paper stencils first and then using photographic emulsion you’ll produce an edition of 10 screen prints onto A3 paper.

In the final week, there will be an opportunity to revisit and explore the process and techniques you enjoyed the most. Throughout the course you will learn about printmaking terminology and relevant contextual artists to start you on your printing journey.

  • Who is the course for?

    This course is suitable for adults who are complete beginners or those who wish to refresh their previous skills in printmaking. You don’t need to feel confident with drawing as all the processes covered on this course lend themselves to great colour, shape and pattern exploration.

  • Do I need to bring anything?

    All equipment and tools will be provided for you including various papers, plates, screens, inks and the materials to explore all processes. Feel free to bring along sketchbooks, images or books for inspiration if you have any. We recommend wearing older clothes in case you get a bit inky!

  • Working Safely

    We have made some changes to ensure everyone feels confident and safe to take part in a workshop without fear of catching Coronavirus. Our courses are running with fewer participants to allow plenty of room for social distancing.In line with government guidance we are also requesting that students attend with a mask or face covering. We hope that being able to immerse yourself with something creative will help to restore a sense of wellbeing and hopefulness as we navigate the new normal. If you have any concerns or specific requirements regarding attending a course please feel free to get in touch with us by emailing: info@the-arthouse.org.uk

Workshop and course bookings can be cancelled and refunded up until 7 days before the scheduled start date. Our workshops support the work we do as a charity, and because materials and equipment are ordered in advance, we regret that refunds cannot be offered less than 7 days before the workshop date. Please note that Eventbrite’s booking fee is non-refundable.

We can also offer the option to transfer to another course or transfer your ticket to a friend or relative in the event that you can’t attend a workshop and course.

If The Art House needs to cancel a workshop for any reason, for example due to tutor illness or if lockdown measures are put back in place your ticket will be refunded in full.
