PRINTMAKING FOR BEGINNERS & IMPROVERS
**All Abilities: Absolute Beginners, Improvers & Advanced
Printmaking is one of the most accessible and satisfying mediums to work in and the techniques you learn can be transferred to many other art processes. You will learn a wide variety of techniques, including skill building in lino block printing, mono-printing, drypoint etching and additional Screenprinting workshop to be scheduled separately (tbc).
You will progress through a range of different techniques for 6 weeks, skipping school half term holiday.
During the course you will explore the deeply satisfying activity of printmaking - from gathering inspiration, to transferring your ideas through the creation of numerous print.
You will be encouraged to explore and develop your own imagery using prompts provided (and encouragedto bring along some of your own). Advise will be given thoughout, on the very best materials and techniques (**included is a 10% discount on any materials in Artreach Art Store during the course).
Each student will leave with a range of their own handmade original prints and will have learnt the basics of many printmaking techniques with lots of tips and advise along the way.
While this workshop is structured around a series of techniques, students can work at their own pace, with individual guidance and ample one-on-one instruction from practicing artists, Kate Jerry & Colette Gambell.
Improvers and advanced students can explore and develop their own tasks within the range of print disciplines, have access to the etching press and other equipment.
