Course Detail

Printmaking Techniques with Rachel Toon

Part time course

Summary

Students will explore mono printing, etching (card and copper), wood, lino cuts and silk screen techniques to include paper stencils, open screen monos and photo stencils

About the Course

This printmaking course offers a diverse approach to image making and development. Students will be encouraged to bring in their own drawings, photographs and found imagery to create a wealth of prints using many techniques.

Through examples and demonstrations the group will be able to develop their skills safely to use a host of print skills and specialised equipment (e.g. etching presses, hotplates, oil based inks and high quality papers). The course will introduce the different techniques allowing for hands on experimentation

What will I learn?

  • Mono printing
  • Silkscreen printing (open screen mono, paper stencils and photo stencils)
  • Etching (card and copper)
  • Wood cuts
  • Lino cuts

Students will learn how to use the studio safely. You will learn how to 'register' prints enabling over printing of differing colour and surfaces as well as cutting techniques and paper preparation for printing

How will the course be delivered?

You will be shown examples, sketchbooks and prints relating to professional practice. Your tutor will offer guidance through workshop activity and informal discussion at points during the sessions. From here the highly experienced tutor will work with students on a 1:1 basis to develop their work and skills

Do I need any experience?

No

What do I need to bring to my first class?
