BEGIN
PRINTMAKING NEW COURSE

An amazing new Printmaking course.

For COMPLETE BEGINNERS - lino cutting and drypoint etching

First used by the German Expressionists as an alternative to woodcut, linocutting has evolved into a popular form of relief printmaking due to it's versatility and ease of use. Linoleum is a very tactile material making the process of carving it very enjoyable! It's great for anyone starting out in printmaking as you can produce professional looking prints without the need to invest in expensive printmaking equipment. In contrast Dry Point Etching is an Intaglio technique through which expressive mark making, a greater control of tone and fine detail can be achieved. During this course you will learn to scribe your own design into a Perspex plate. You will print using high quality water-soluble oil-based inks that are not 'smelly' are non-toxic and completely safe.
