Students will be introduced to basic printmaking practice and will develop these skills over the duration of the course. The course is aimed at those who are new to printmaking and art.The course will introduce students basic printmaking methods, including creating a line on a copper plate (hard ground and soft ground).
As students will be working from their own ideas, we would prefer you to bring a drawing or painting you have made yourself as source material. The plate size we work on is 15 x 18 cm. Please make drawings to fit this size. If you do not usually draw or paint, please bring other source material, like a tracing of a drawing or some photographs or images you like to help us understand what kind of image you would like to make. The more source material you bring with you, the better! Please bring a hard copy image with you, not an image on a device. Students will be provided with a start-up supply of copper, paper and inks. Safety goggles and masks are also provided.
