Introduction to Printmaking
Have you ever wondered what this is all about? Why people get so
enthused about this subject in these days of easy digital printing?
Here is your chance to find out.
Experienced tutor and printmaker Silvana McLean will guide you
through this ten week introductory course in the village of Moniaive
covering several different types of printmaking.
Monoprinting. (3 weeks)
The techniques explored produce charcoal-like drawings and also
painterly layering of colour. We will also learn how to use inks and
rollers, how to keep paper clean and care for materials and equipment.
Drypoint. (3 weeks)
Using acetate, we will learn essential intaglio practices as the inking,
wiping and printing methods are identical to that of etching. We will
print in both black and white and colour using a portable etching press
and beautiful German etching paper.
Linocut. (4 weeks)
We introduce design development to create bold, graphic images. Both
black and white and two-part colour will be explored. During this
section we can develop ideas for Christmas cards and hand-print some
for your friends and family.
