This is a 10 week workshop for anyone who would like to try printmaking for the first time or refresh their printmaking skills in a professional studio environment. The aim of the workshop is to give you a series of practical taster sessions on a variety of creative printmaking techniques.

Over the 10 weeks there will be two sessions on each of the following printmaking processes: relief, intaglio, collagraph, mono and screen. You will be taught by one of the Regional Print Centre’s Print Facilitators who have a wealth of printmaking knowledge and understanding.

All materials and equipment will be provided and participants are encouraged to explore their own subject and creative influences throughout the workshop sessions.

Participants who complete the 10 week programme can then progress to our Focus on Printmaking Workshops and Visiting Artists Workshops. You can also use the Regional Print Centre’s open access facilities to develop their work and understanding.
