This course focuses on experimenting with a combination of traditional printmaking techniques including simple block-print, etching, collagraph and mono-print to develop a print or series of prints. Printmaking both complements and brings perspective to other areas of creative practice. Many printmaking techniques involve drawing in its many forms and the techniques taught on this course will bring a new perspective and enjoyment to this fundamental artist’s skill. This course is ideal for artist practitioners working in any medium who would like to gain an understanding of print techniques and re-engage with the drawn mark. 

Students will be able to: 

  • Use printmaking tools and equipment correctly and safely. 
  • Create images using experimental combinations of printmaking techniques.
  • Apply graphic mark making, intaglio and block print techniques in the creation of prints. 
  • Create a final print or series of prints, applying printmaking and editioning techniques. 
  • Research, plan and complete a self initiated project
  • Apply safe working practices at all times.
