The final 2 days,  Thursday and Friday will be spent building on learned experiences, materials and processes to explore your aspirations in creative printmaking. The nature of this course would suit complete beginners through to more experienced practitioners seeking access to tools and equipment such as the studio press and inks. There will be plenty of time for one to one tutorial and supervision. It is anticipated that you shall leave at the end of the week with a concise body of work reflecting approaches to fine art creative printmaking. Ancillary to the practical content there will be a few video and slide talks covering contextual awareness.
