Reportage Illustration Short Course

Course description

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.

Anyone interested in hand rendered screen printing (including basic textiles on fabric). Beginners to intermediate refresher.
