Join us in Camberwell's impressive print studios as we take you through the intensive and rewarding processes of hand printing on to paper. Under the expert technical guidance of your tutor, you'll learn how to break images down into separations, combine stencils and overlay imagery to produce multicoloured designs. We'll also demonstrate specialist inking techniques including flocking, glitter and inks. Our aim is to encourage playful interaction between the printmaker, the image and the process, so you can be certain of discovering new and exciting ways to express your ideas. One-to-one tutorials will allow you to tailor your experience and produce an individual portfolio of work. Please bring along visual images to reference on your first day so that you get started straight away.
You'll develop a small portfolio of work, demonstrating a broad mix of techniques and processes. This could consist of a large one-off print, large poster edition, and print on unusual media or printed textile garment such as a T-shirt.

'Our course tutor, Tony, was superb, very down to earth and easy to talk to. He went above and beyond helping us all individually, and as a group. All of us came out the end of the course with superb work, all very different and varied in processes. It says a lot that we all felt that the course had helped us develop our own styles even though we all had been in the same class.' - Fiona Brown. Read the full review.
