This introductory course takes both the complete beginner and those with some previous experience through a series of taught techniques, from the fundamental paper stencil to the more sophisticated full-colour digital and photographic screen prints.
This course develops a successful and confident working knowledge of this print process. It is supported by one to one tuition, in a well run and established studio. This is a creative course that embraces experimentation, and celebrates the unexpected and unforeseen, in printed matter whilst laying down the foundations for solid printmaking. A choice of substrates is on offer from paper to textiles. Come with personal ideas and projects or simply with an enquiring mind.
