Intro to Printmaking Techniques: Etching/Monoprint/Collograph
Level: Complete Beginners to Improvers & Refreshers

This course is ideal for those who wish to experiment with multiple printmaking techniques without huge investment. It will allow participants to create their own set of prints using these techniques and decide if they would like to pursue any method in more detail.
The course will include:

  • Copper plate etching – Prepping a plate, ‘drawing’ an image, etching and printing
  • Monoprinting – This method involves inking up a surface & working into the ink or applying ink to the surface in different ways. Various tools can be used to create different textures & mark-making e.g. paintbrushes, wire, pencil, feathers etc.
  • Collograph – Applying a range of household and other materials to a flat surface can create a huge variety of textures that add real depth and interest when inked up and printed e.g. tile adhesive, lace, cloth, leaves. Collographs are an ideal way to experiment safely with texture.

Course numbers are limited to ensure each participant receives ample guidance from the tutor and there is plenty of time for questions & advice. All materials are included in the course cost but if participants have specific materials/paper they would like to incorporate, we are happy to advise in advance.
