Fridays (12 Wks)
11:45 – 13:45
For anyone with an interest in art and design, including beginners to printmaking (indeed, excellent results can be achieved without formal drawing skills). Students are encouraged to develop their own ideas from drawings or personal images in a sharing environment.
The class offers an introduction to the art of printmaking – getting to know the materials and the workshop environment – and to the work of contemporary and historical print makers. Students will learn the fundamental relief and intaglio techniques – mono printing, dry point and one-colour lino. In building their portfolio of prints, students can either consolidate their knowledge of one type of process or experiment with a range of techniques including collagraph, multiple-colour linos and advanced mono prints.
All basic materials are included.
