Printmaking is essentially the process of creating an original ‘print’, by transferring an impression from one surface to another. It is not a direct process such as drawing or painting but any method that allows an artist to create an image in one place that is then transferred to another.
Printmaking is an exciting and accessible art form which I am very passionate about. The printmaking courses that I teach online combine both detailed technical knowledge with plenty of room for creativity and fun.
There are four main categories that the various forms of printmaking fall into - Relief (lino/woodcut, wood engraving), Intaglio (etching, drypoint, mezzotint), Stencil Based (screenprinting) and Planographic (lithography).
Most of these techniques can be explored at home in some form - so read on to find out what you can learn with me...
