Description

Are you interested in printmaking but don’t know where to start? Come along to this tailor made Intro to Printmaking night class!

Course Information

These introductory classes run in the evening over a four-week period and are designed to familiarise you with all the main principles of printmaking; intaglio, relief, stencil and planographic.

Each night will cover a different process;

Monoprinting
The freedom of Monoprint techniques allow a very versatile approach to imagery. The appeal of the monotype lies in the unique textures that create a quality of light very differently from a painting on paper or a print, and the beauty of this media is also in its spontaneity and its combination of printmaking, painting and drawing methods.

Linocut
Lino is a beautifully malleable printing surface. It is a very graphic method of producing an image. Designs can be cut, melted, or carved to create a bold and experimental design.

Drypoint on Copper
Drypoint is a printmaking technique that achieves a line-based image, using sharp tools to scratch into the surface of a copper plate. The style of this method lends itself well to loose drawing and expressive mark making.

Stencil Screen Printing
There are many different ways to create a stencil for Screen Printing, as it is the underlying principle to the whole process. A traditional method is to create the stencil out of a non-porous material by hand (much like a papercut) and then applying this to the mesh of the screen and producing multiple prints onto paper or fabric.

All materials and notes are included in the price of this workshop. No previous experience of printmaking is required.
