We deal with printed images every day. Anything that is made in a reproducible format is a print; photocopies, posters, photographs, band t-shirts etc.

Fine art printmaking has been traditionally defined through the technical processes of relief, intaglio, lithography, and screen printing. The line between printmaking art and other printed forms has been blurred as artists re-examine the traits that define print practice, with the addition of digital processes playing a major part.

This class teaches a process-based approach to making art, covering the technical aspects of printmaking, looking at how the processes and functions inform the strategy of making art; at how the medium or technique exists as the means to realise an idea.

This class is suitable for those with prior printmaking experience.
