This course will run over 3 sessions on 24th January, 31st January & 7th February 2024 – 6:00pm-8:30pm
Learn valuable skills to kickstart your printmaking practice. Gain new skills, create artwork to take home, and meet other creative people along the way.
On the three sessions you will learn and practise;
● Monoprinting – using stencils, shapes, patterns and simple drawing techniques you’ll produce a series of different A4 prints using our etching presses.
● Collograph – using different textures and shapes you’ll build your own collograph plate to produce a small series of A4 prints.
● Lino Printing – using soft cut lino, you’ll carve your own block to produce a small edition of A4 prints using our Albion press.
Who is the workshop 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, inks and materials to explore all processes. Feel free to bring along sketchbooks, images or books for inspiration if you have any. We recommend wearing old clothes in case you get a bit inky! Sensible footwear should be worn in the Print Studio – so no sandals or high heels.
