The Printmaking facility is based around four core areas of traditional printmaking techniques: silkscreen, lithography, etching and relief printing.
Students are encouraged to experiment by combining various techniques including the latest digital methods of printing such as UV and 3D to produce interesting hybrid outcomes. Students can print onto virtually any material as long as it’s reasonably flat. For example, a BA Graphic Communication Design student once made a short film about the impact of fossil fuels on the environment by silk-screening a series of images directly onto slabs of ice.
While any student is welcome to visit us our core users tend to be from the Graphic communication Design and Art programmes.
