Description

This course explores printmaking in an accessible and fun way. We will experiment with different printing techniques which can all be achieved without a printing press.
No previous experience is necessary.

We will cover the basics of printmaking and experiment with a range of techniques including: mono printing, gelli plate, polystyrene and lino cut printing.
You will leave with a selection of printing samples, some finished pieces and hopefully a new artistic interest!

All materials will be provided; however, you will need to wear overalls or old clothes as you may get messy. Please bring several sheets of white tissue paper or plain newsprint to lay your still wet finished prints between in order to transport them home.

You may like to bring some images or photos as inspiration for your printmaking. Simple motifs are very effective.

The following themes work well: Seaside, Still life, Birds and insects, flowers
