This course is an opportunity to develop traditional and contemporary printmaking skills and is for anyone who is interested in this creative medium.
The workshops will cover a range of techniques and encourage you to explore your own ideas for development in our purpose built printmaking studio. Techniques covered will include screen printing, collagraph, lino, etching and monoprinting and digital printing enabling you to develop work in your own style. You will consider the surfaces that can be printed on and how print can be used for a range of creative outcomes.
No previous experience necessary, just an interest in the subject area. Learners would benefit from attending each term to build skills in preparation for the term two and term three courses, although this is not a barrier to attending each term as a standalone course.
This course is delivered in the art and design studios at the Llwyn y Bryn campus. During the course learners will complete a booklet of outcomes. This is assessed in order to certificate for the qualification.
Progression from any part time course could offer a pathway to full time courses in art and design. For adult learners considering a creative career, the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design course could provide a progression route for this.
