About the Course
Weekend woodblock printmaking course, run by the Field Studies Council.
Using the stunning landscape and natural environment of Flatford Mill as inspiration, this practical and hands on course that will introduce you to woodblock printing techniques. We will be using drawing as a staring point for investigating relief printmaking techniques that do not require specialist equipment to produce and that you will be able to continue to develop in your own time at home. Students will be encourage to develop their own design work within their abilities and work at their own pace in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere that welcomes discussion and the sharing of ideas and good practice. The course is suitable for beginners, but a basic level of drawing ability is desirable.
