Print Making for Beginners - Part-time

Hobbies Printmaking

Course outline

This course will be of interest to students with previous experience of painting and drawing who would like to try some basic printmaking.

The focus will be on processes which do not need a press. Students will design and make prints using several different methods. They all involve creating a design on a printing plate which is then inked and the picture is transferred to paper. The prints could be framed or used as greetings cards.

Topics include:

  • Design
  • Lino cuts
  • Collagraphs
  • Monoprints - 3 types
  • Cardboard cuts
  • Health and safety
