Contact time may be extended to incorporate artists talks or day long activities such as study visits and drawing days. These sessions will be timetabled and information provided in advance.
Screenprinting is a wonderfully versatile medium. You can quite quickly achieve a finished print but the process has boundless possibilities once you start printing. During this course you will have time to extend your knowledge of the technicalities of the process, build and extend your skills and develop a very personal response to the process. Will appeal to creative thinkers, makers, and those who have or hope to study a variety of arts including illustration, graphic design or fine art.
Through studio and workshop projects, you will be introduced to a range of screen printing techniques. Learn how to research and develop ideas and how to evaluate and reflect on your progress. Artist’s talks and local study days will inspire and excite the imagination, and hands on drawing workshops will feed into the printing process.
Covering a variety of screenprinting methods, students will learn how to develop ideas, drawings, digital and photographic imagery into screen printed designs. There will be two options on the course; for people who have some experience of screen printing and are keen to pursue their own projects, there will be a free option for individual study with support and guidance from the tutors. These students will join us for study days, critiques and artist’s talks but will have freedom to pursue their own goals. For those who require more structure the tutors will demonstrate techniques and set briefs, students will learn a number of different ways of working. This diagnostic approach will lead to students finding their own paths and following their own personal project ideas in the final term. The course will end with a group show in the studio open to family and friends.
