Master a rich variety of mark making in fine print processes. Get your hands dirty painting, drawing, scratching, scraping, gouging, polishing, and wiping ink to create vivid surface textures.
Throughout this 8-week course, printmaker Rebecca Baird will help you develop your technique with a focus on developing your ideas and transferring your own imagery into handmade prints.
Working in the medium of your choice, whether that be lino, woodblock, monoprint, collagraph, drypoint, etching, photopolymer, stencil or screen printing, you'll take home everything you produce - proofs, print editions and the blocks or plates you've made your prints from.
