Our printmaking course offers beginners and intermediate students the opportunity to discover the endless possibilities that this medium can offer. Terms may be attended either individually or as a continuous year of study. 

We will cover a wide range of printmaking techniques throughout the year, in a non-toxic environment and use water-based inks. Each term a new print process will be introduced giving students an excellent printmaking overview.

This hands-on course will cover the finer techniques of printmaking, demonstrating good ink applications, colour roll-up techniques and chine collé throughout each print process.

Demonstrations will be delivered at each stage, supported by documentation and open discussions. By the end of the year, students will hold a cohesive body of work showing a good development of ideas and have a good understanding of basic printmaking techniques.

"For me it’s about making an impression of something, introducing new ideas and skills that students can include and extend on into their own practice" Alexis Neal
