Have you done a little bit of printmaking but are feeling a bit stuck? Come along to this tailor made Explore Printmaking night class to do just that; explore and experiment! This four-week course is an opportunity to explore printmaking and its many techniques in a supportive and stimulating working studio.
What will you learn?
This night class offers a little more in-depth look at experimenting with mark making, colour and texture whilst introducing you to the somewhat more advanced processes of collography, acrylic resist etching and photographic screen printing.
Each night will cover a different process;
Collography (also spelt Collagraphy) is both an intaglio and relief printmaking technique. The term ‘Collography’ is derived from the Greek words ‘collo’ (meaning glue) and ‘graph’ (meaning the activity of drawing). We will cover this technique will over two evenings.
Acrylic Resist Etching: Line Drawing
Etching is an intaglio printing process. Intaglio means a figure or a design cut or hollowed out of any substance. In this introduction to the Queen of printmaking; Etching, we will cover how to prep metal plates and etching a line drawing.
Photographic Screen Printing
Although Photographic Screen Printing is a technique that was primarily developed for graphic and commercial use, it is perhaps one of the most useful of all printmaking processes available to the studio-based artist/printmaker.
