Adult Printmaking with the Etching Press | 09:30 – 12:00 | Tuesdays Spring 2023
£40.00 – £360.00
Whether you are a complete beginner, wish to supplement your existing skill set, or are an experienced artist looking to find a new working environment and friendly community in which to pursue your creativity and passion, you will be received with a warm welcome.
The Printmaking with Etching Press class introduces adult students to the imaginative and unique world of printmaking. It covers everything that there is to know about printmaking and – more importantly – gets students involved in making their own original prints as well as editioning, mounting and even exhibiting if they wish.
As well as learning all about the etching press and the different printmaking capabilities that it offers, there is the opportunity to discover some of the many printmaking techniques – from intaglio processes such as dry point and collagraph to relief printing with lino or woodcut and all the bits and pieces in between. Each term we look at a different process and take a different creative theme for inspiration. Every student receives individual tuition and is encouraged to work to their own aesthetic and ability. The course is a fun and exciting look into the world of printmaking led by an experienced artist and teacher. You are sure to walk away with an abundance of knowledge and skills that you can use both in printmaking and in other creative pursuits.
This specialist course boasts a small class size, offering you ample attention from the tutor and space in which to work safely and socially distanced.
- Full Term (10 weeks) with Discount – 1 free class and class attendance guaranteed.
- Buy 6 sessions. This is a great option if you cannot commit to a full term. These sessions can be used at any time during the term, subject to availability. NB Each Tuesday class has a maximum size of six students so we would advise booking your 6 sessions as far in advance as possible and no less than one week before you plan to attend. Places on any particular date will be allocated first to those who have booked the Full Term and then on a first come first served basis to those who have booked 6 sessions. (If you would like to do more than the 6 sessions you can continue paying on a pro rata basis, but attendance will be subject to availability).
