These courses are designed as part of a year’s programme but can also be taken individually. They target learners not yet proficient printmakers who wish to develop their technical knowledge and also gain an understanding of the work of contemporary artists to inspire their own creative approach.
Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.
The class day to day, will be a mixture of workshop time and structured learning by watching demonstrations and looking at artist’s work relevant to the class projects and your own interests. You are encouraged to find your own themes and preferred techniques, and to push these to make creative prints finished to a high technical standard.
Informal one-to-one tutorials, group critiques and discussions will support your progress and achievement. It is recommended that you prepare imagery and materials of your choice outside the class, so you can use the time in the studio more fully for printing and technical processing which cannot be done at home. A sketchbook documenting your idea development, technical notes and research is also recommended. Many learners enrol for the year, but newcomers will join in the class project and be guided through techniques to start them off. More advanced learners can work on their own projects but join in group projects and critiques.
Final prints can be submitted to our end of year Printmaking Exhibition at the college gallery in early July when we enjoy a lively Private View evening to celebrate the work created during the year on all our courses. In order to ensure that you make the best possible progress on your course, you will have regular feedback from your tutor, in a constructive and supportive environment.
