This course focuses on experimenting with a combination of techniques including simple block-print, etching, collagraph and mono-print to develop a print or series of prints. The course will bring a new perspective to printmaking working in a process-led way to embrace and develop both the intentional and surprise elements of intaglio and relief printmaking. This course is ideal for painting and drawing practitioners who would like to recalibrate their practice, gain a perspective of print techniques and re engage with the drawn mark. Print both compliments and brings perspective to other areas of creative practice and enables one to reconsider and refresh an established routine.

What level is this course?

This course is suitable for students at our Beginner + level.

  • Beginner +

    Choose a Beginner + course if you are looking to hone your skills, focus on a specific subject area and build your confidence. These courses are suitable for those with some basic skills in and knowledge of the taught medium, but still follow a structured path with guidance from the tutor.

Other course levels include:

  • Beginner

    Choose a Beginners course if you are looking for a broad introduction to the medium you are studying. Students spend time learning the very basics of the taught medium, for example, how to mix colours, use different tools, set up an easel. Our Beginner courses are suitable for students with no prior experience, they tend to follow a more structured path than our other courses, ensuring each student receives the guidance they need from the tutor.

  • Intermediate

    Our Intermediate courses are suitable for students who have considerable prior knowledge of the taught medium or have completed a Beginners/Beginners + course with the Art Academy.

    These courses tend to be less structured and instead are tailored to the classes’ needs and the direction they want to advance in. Choose an Intermediate course if you are looking to improve your skills and have more critical discussions around the work you produce.

  • Advanced

    Choose our Advanced courses if you have considerable knowledge in the taught medium. You are expected to be able to work independently and have critical discussions around your work.

     Our Advanced courses include our Masterclasses.

All attendees must be aged 18 or over.

What should I bring?

There is a materials fee for this course which must be paid the first week of term. This fee includes plates/blocks, paper, inks, chemicals, grounds and all printmaking sundries. The cost of materials for the course is £40 per student. You will be required to buy your own wood/lino/metal for your self-led project in the latter part of the course and if your project is large scale or beyond the normal scope of the workshop’s provision you may also need to purchase your own paper and other media etc.
