Printmaking - lino, etching and monoprint workshop
Start date: 14th Jan 2020
Time: 19:00 - 21:15
Duration: 8 weeks
Tutor: Terry Kellett
Course code: 20SP58
The Course is for students who would like to create, design and produce prints using the basic forms of printing (linocuts, collagraphs and mono prints), using a wide range of materials and processes.
The basic print making techniques are aimed to introduce the student to use their imagination and explore the development of the printing surface.
"Release your creative imagination".
The types of printing that can be explored are:
A linocut is probably the most basic form of relief printing used, in which the surface of the linoleum is carved using various cutting tools from which the image is printed.
Collagraph is an experimental form of print making which involves adding layers of adhesives or solid material to the surface of a printing plate. There are no limitations to how simple or complex a printing plate can be or the kind of material that it can be made from.
(Paper, card, plastic, wood, polystyrene).
Contrasting textures which can be achieved are limited only by your imagination.
A Monoprint is one of a kind printed image. The most common approach is to paint ink directly on to a clear plastic plate or using an ink roller over the surface of the plate.
Various textures can then be achieved by drawing into the inked surface. Once the image is complete, the residue ink can be printed on the printing press.
Note: Four A5 sheets of lino are available to use in this course. Any further lino required may be purchased during the course. Inks, rollers, palettes, cutting boards and tools etc are available for you to use within the centre.
At the end of the Course students should have the confidence and inspiration to produce their own prints.
