This course starts off with basic single block printing and then moves on to help you develop skills in reduction printing and multiple block.

Times:

Monday evenings 7-9pm for 11 weeks starting on the 9th of January

Thursday mornings 10am-12pm for 11 weeks starting on the 12th of January

There is also Printmaking for Beginners on Monday mornings which gives you the opportunity to try 4 different methods including monoprint, lino cut, drypoint and collagraph.

Time:

Monday mornings 10am-12pm for 11 weeks starting on the 9th of January

For a course that offers more development in the designing and research processes behind different printing methods, there is a Level 1 NCFE certificate in printmaking on Mondays as well. As an accredited course you will be expected to meet the NCFE criteria and build a portfolio of work that demonstrates the development of your ideas and techniques. You will sample various printmaking techniques and work towards a final edition of presentable prints.

This course will run from Monday the 9th of January from 13.30 – 16.30 for 24 weeks. once completed you might be interested in continuing these skills by doing a Level 2 course in September!

If you are interested check out further course info on the link below and also the course fees – which are all subsidised!

Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair!

10 Oct

I was emailed earlier in the summer about taking part in the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair in London and am excited to have decided to take part! It looks like a great range of artist’s original prints will be on display and should be an opportunity to meet a wider printmaking community!

The exhibition takes place from the 17th – 20th November at the Royal Arsenal Riverside in Woolwich and is curated by the Brocket Gallery London.

I’ve decided to exhibit ‘Mezzo-type’, my mezzotint from last year, and ‘Rocker’ as they were particularly interested in my embossed pieces and these combine different methods and will work well displayed together! I am particularly proud of ‘Mezzo-type’ as it was a real labour of love, and although it is a bit different to my most recent work, I do intend to do a twin print in the next year of another printmaking machine from the John Jarrold Printing Museum in Norwich.

Watch this space, and share the exhibition link! It’s going to be a fantastic showcase of printmaking from across the UK!
