A mixed-media print making course that invites beginners to learn popular types of printmaking and their application on a range of paper and textile surfaces. Explore Lino printing, Screen printing and Collagraph Etching over the 9 week course. Experimental applications of these processes will be encouraged using ink and rollers. Participants will be assisted to draw and design their own work while taking inspiration from famous print makers like Grace-Cossington Smith and M. C Escher. At the end of the course you will create a beautiful portfolio of prints in a short time for display at the student exhibition, to use as gifts or to frame for home.
