All Levels Printmaking

Rachel Cohen

This 10 week course introduces several types of monoprinting, and then relief and intaglio techniques using simple and recycled materials such as lino, card and plastic. You will work with water based, non toxic inks, various papers and collage techniques. The printing press will be used but some of the techniques need no specialist equipment so you can continue working with them outside the course.

Suitable for all levels including beginners, no experience or art training is needed. Returning students or others familiar with the techniques are welcome, and may work on their own projects or try more advanced techniques with guidance and advice from the tutor as needed.

Student comment about the tutor: I’ve really enjoyed your drawing course this term. As a self-taught beginner, I’ve never had chance to explore techniques or other materials or drawing styles, so it’s been great to try out new things with your thoughtful guidance. I’ve really appreciated how much thought and care you put into the sessions, and I can see my own drawing at home has developed and I’m enjoying a wider range of expression in my own sketch pad.’

N.B. No class on 25 May.

Artworks are by previous course attendees.

All materials provided. Students are invited to bring their own images and ideas but the tutor will also provide objects and images to inspire you. Please wear old clothes as printing can be messy.
