Summer School // Printmaking and Imagination

Printmaking is a fluid and versatile way of transforming the way you draw. In this course, you will be guided through various printmaking techniques that you can do at home without a press or complicated equipment. In the first half of the week students will be guided on how to transform sketchbook drawings in order to create linocut prints; first with one colour, followed by the reduction method and then a 3 colour multi-block print.  In the second half of the week, students will be shown how to make both drawn and painterly marks through mono-printing. You will learn how to create drawn lines, reduction prints, painterly monotypes and multi-layered images with chine-colle (collage). By the end of week, you will have created a series of prints, that could potentially inspire a whole new body of work. This course is suitable for both complete beginners and those with previous printmaking experience. You will be given instructions on materials to buy before the course begins.
