Using a small portable press (capable of printing on paper up to 60cm length x 22cm width) we will explore traditional methods and techniques in drypoint etching, monotypes and relief printmaking methods.
Bring along sketchbooks, investigate ideas and experiment with mark-making processes, techniques and materials to create hand-printed imagery.
Through exploring traditional printmaking processes this course will offer participants a tangible way to experiment with and develop alternative creative possibilities.
No previous experience required - suitable for all levels, beginners most welcome!
