Scarlett has been teaching printmaking for over 10 years. After a serendipitous shuffle of job roles at Brighton University Scarlett was introduced to lithography 5 years ago and fell in love immediately. She now has two stone lithographic presses and nearly 20 stones! Scarlett works between her studios in Brighton and North Wales, teaching printmaking and producing intricately patterned portraits in relief print and lithography.
This is a wonderful course! So intimate and friendly because of the smaller group. Scarlett had time to attend to our needs individually because of this. Every time that I came a cropper she explained where I may have gone wrong very clearly, l learned so much in only 3 hours. Her short films were invaluable too.
James Ort was so helpful as well.
I fully recommend that you give this course a go, it was so inspiring!
Thank you, Celeste
Scarlett prepared some excellent videos guiding us through the process before the live sessions and posted us some wonderful resources to get us started.
The live session was an chance for us to work through it together with Scarlett guiding us patiently when we got stuck. Everyone ended up with something they were happy with and motivation to carry on over the next fortnight for an optional critique.
I would highly recommend any of Scarlett's courses supported by Phoneix Studio, a really lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Not having done any printing before, I was a little anxious that I’d feel completely out of my depth - but I needn’t have worried. Everything was so clearly explained on the videos and in the friendly Zoom sessions Scarlett helped with any problems. The techniques are fascinating, it was so friendly and enjoyable, I’m hooked!
Kitchen lithography such a fun and interesting process! I loved the idea of drawing in chocolate and using items commonly found around the home to create beautiful prints.
Scarlett has a wonderfully approachable teaching style and always injects some humour into the sessions as well, which makes them very fun and relaxed. In the live sessions you can share work, practice techniques and discuss anything and everything about printmaking!
There is a lot included for the price and Scarlett is very generous both in terms of the materials she provides and the time and support she gives to her students.
I highly recommend Scarlett's courses as something fun and different to do, even for people who have never tried primaking before, and they have been really helping me to get through lockdown!
