Foundation Course in Fine Art Printmaking

This is an ideal way to experience the breadth of printmaking. Each day is a standalone course where you will be taught the basics of the technique and explore the unique character and potential of the differing processes. You will be taught how to use tools for each technique, how to plan a simple print, apply inks, use the presses and how you could print at home. The two Personal Choice days are a chance to continue exploring the techniques already taught and to develop your ideas with the support and guidance of the tutor.
