Course Aim

To provide opportunities for the development of skills and techniques of traditional printmaking, leading to the creation of a series of hand printed artworks as part of an personal printing project.

Course Description

This course gives opportunities for students who are beginning printmaking or who have some printmaking skills to work more independently to further develop their skills and work on individual projects. There will be opportunities to learn and develop skills in monoprinting, collagraph, drypoint, etching on metal and linoprinting.
