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!

‘Mezzotype’ – New mezzotint completed!

17 Aug

It’s done!! I finished proofing the mezzotint I’ve been working on last week and also made a collagraph plate to print the block of text in the foreground.  I’m really excited about this new print, not just because it’s finished, but because of how well the two plates have worked together. I managed to make the collagraph thin enough so that it could sit on the surface of the mezzotint and be printed at the same time! This has saved time because I originally planned to stencil out the area and then print a lino cut in the space but this way makes it more integrated as an image and because it has been embossed it works better as an intaglio-relief combination!

'Mezzotype' £220 (unframed)

I’ll be taking this down to the framers today in preparation for the 20th Norwich Print Fair which takes place at St Margaret’s Church, St Benedict’s St, Norwich from Mon 7th – Sat 19th September!   http://www.norwichprintfair.co.uk/

PRINT TO THE PEOPLE !!!!!!

10 Mar

Print to the People are an artist led organisation that was started up in Norwich by two super keen screen printmakers, Jo Stafford and Vicky Johnson back in 2009.  They provide facilities and workshops on a pay as you go basis, giving the people of Norwich and beyond the chance to develop their printing techniques either as complete beginners, recent graduates or experienced fanatics!

Up until recently the organisation, ‘STEW’, was based on Fishergate and primarily focused on paper and textile screen printing. However, they will very soon be moving to new premises on Pitt Street where they will be offering a wider range of printmaking facilities and events including relief printing, letterpress with Paul McNeill and also I will be getting involved to provide intaglio!

Check out the website and look out for upcoming events! I’ll keep you poste on here too!
