LP has devised a new introductory printmaking course that will allow participants to explore multiple forms of printmaking over four weeks. This course is ideal for those who would like to sample an overview of some the main methods of printmaking without the financial investment of partaking in multiple courses. The course is open to everyone, from those who have never made a print before to those who may be proficient in some forms of print but would like to try others. Classes will be varied and challenging with an emphasis on enjoyment and supported, inclusive learning.
Each week, tutor Aine Finnegan will teach the basics of different methods of printmaking including:
• Monotype Printmaking.
• Relief printmaking – linocuts & woodblocks.
• Letterpress – Demo in setting type and printing text.
• Intaglio printmaking – etching using both the drypoint method and copper etchings using soft/hard grounds.
Aine Finnegan is a practising printmaker who was jointly awarded the LP Printmaking Bursary in 2015, culminating in a joint solo exhibition. Her work features in many private collections. She has featured in and organised several print projects with LP. She is currently undertaking an MA in Graphic Design in Dublin.
