Our series of Focus on Printmaking Workshops offer a valuable opportunity to discover new processes and develop a sophisticated understanding of printmaking. They are designed to meet the requirements of people with a keen interest in the subject and cater for varying levels of experience.
Each 2-day workshop aims to give participants knowledge and understanding of a particular process (for example Linocut, Collagraph, Drypoint, Etching or Screenprint) and an opportunity to produce work that shows a creative response to that printmaking technique. 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 2-day workshop.
Participants can move on to use the open access printmaking facilities available through the Centre to further develop their work. They can also progress to our specialist Visiting Artists Workshops which take place regularly throughout the year.
Would you like to try printmaking or refresh your printmaking skills? Perhaps you are looking for a new creative direction? If so, then this is the workshop for you!

Printmaking as a creative activity has a long and distinguished history. It has provided a multi-faceted vehicle for an enormously diverse range of artists, from Durer to Warhol, to explore an equally diverse range of issues and ideas. The qualifications, whilst allowing students to build on prior experience, will require them to face up to new intellectual and material experiences and challenges designed to deliver an independent critical understanding and extended skills base.
In order to achieve a Level 3 Award in Printmaking students must complete two units
- Unit 7 Level 3 Principles of Printmaking (compulsory)
In addition, one optional unit from:
- Unit 8 Level 3 Intaglio Printmaking
- Unit 9 Level 3 Relief Printmaking
- Unit 11 Level 3 Screen Printing
All units will be internally assessed and moderated against the assessment criteria for those units.
Students are required to achieve a pass grade in each unit to qualify for an overall qualification grade.
Participants can also move on to use the open access printmaking facilities available through the Regional Print Centre to further develop their work. They can also progress to specialist visiting Artists Workshops which take place regularly throughout the year.
In 2017/18 the Centre will focus on training and development through the medium of printmaking. Therefore we will be offering studio open access, specialist workshops with printmakers/artists, Scholarship opportunities, courses, and a symposium event. Details will be added to our website/social media channels in due course.
Membership will run from April 2017 to March 2018 and will be £35.00 for the year.
