This course will enable you to investigate various printmaking processes including etching, collagraph, linocuts and monotypes.
This course is designed for both beginners and those with some experience who wish to further develop their understanding of printmaking
The course will enable you to develop your ideas into printmaking and give you an in depth understanding of print processes. You can either work from a set project brief or develop your own personal project. The emphasis will be on experimentation and idea development. Developing images and preparing your printing plates or blocks between sessions would allow you to maximise the printing time in the studio.
Print processes available include:
Etching & aquatints
• We use oil based printing inks and white spirit in the print studio; disposable gloves are provided.
• Ink will be provided by the college but you will need to purchase paper, printing plates and lino from the college print room (or source you own).
• Best practice is to keep a sketchbook for technical notes, recording ideas and developing compositions etc.
• Bring to the first class pencil, pen, cotton rags and a range of brushes (nylon/hog hair). Wear appropriate clothing as printmaking can be messy.
This specialist course has been identified to run with fewer numbers due to either the student demand for the course and subject area or the need for increased one to one tuition. This course will be able to run with only 6 learners and will have a maximum of 10 in the class.
