Drawing into Printmaking – SOLD OUT

Drawing is integral to printmaking. During this course you will use observational drawing to develop a series of prints and use the potential of different methods of printmaking to move backwards and forwards between print and drawing. Using print techniques related to monotype (drawing into a field of ink with a range of implements), etching and drypoint (drawing with a needle into media such as plastic or metal); and various reproduction, collage and transfer methods, you will produce a series of prints which have moved through stages of development from observational drawing through to print and back again. Printmaking expands the possibilities of mark-making, allowing for repetition, iteration, variation and collage. It can provide the artist as a draughtsman with a degree of separation from the work they are producing which significantly changes the creative experience.

Sue Corke works across printmaking, drawing and installation, her interest in science and storytelling also fuels a more conceptual approach. She is our current Head of the Print Department.
