Mondays

Printmaking in Practice

PAINTING_IN_PRACTICECourse Code: D1701PR08
Tutor: Sue Corke
Dates: Mondays, 18th September – 27th November 2017
Times: 10am – 5pm
Experience Level: Advanced
Fee: £495

This course is aimed at students who are near to completing Certificate or Diploma studies, or recent graduates who want to continue their studies in a supported but more self-directed environment. It meets an identified demand from students who have already undertaken a number of other print courses to continue to receive a high level of technical tutoring without having to repeat skills modules they have already completed. Each student therefore proposes their own 10 week project. A maximum of eight students are in each class, individually tutored by Sue Corke (Etching: September-November) and Theo Ereira-Guyer (Relief: April-June:). Projects can be research based: e.g. investigating colour printing techniques; or subject based, e.g. developing a single edition or a series of prints based on a particular theme. Tutors will respond to your ideas and develop with you a programme of study tailored to your needs. They will work with you to overcome technical challenges and provide friendly constructive feedback throughout. The aim is to enable students to produce a sustained major project which helps develop their individual artistic practice.

Sue Corke is our current Head of Print. She has worked extensively in print studios around Europe as a printer, tutor and artist since first serving an apprenticeship in Etching and Lithography at Edinburgh Printmakers. She often works in partnership with German artist Hagen Betzwieser as We Colonised The Moon.
