What is the course about?

This course encourages appreciation of the mixed media application of monoprint and intaglio printmaking processes whilst introducing basic printmaking techniques. You will explore line, tone and texture using a variety of materials to produce images.

What will we cover?

Taking an image/idea of your choice as a starting point, you will be introduced to monoprinting, drypoint etching processes using a step-by-step approach. Using these processes, you will create plates and develop images using a variety of techniques in both monochrome and colour.

What will I achieve?

- Apply aquatints
- Print plates/blocks in both monochrome and colour using intaglio and relief processes.
- Develop images by experimenting with collage and colour printing techniques
- Use the print room equipment safely and effectively.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
