Printmaking Courses and Tutors

Printmaking Courses

Courses and classes at the Workshop welcome both newcomers to printmaking and established practitioners. Term time classes cover a range of printmaking techniques whilst 3 day and 5 day courses encourage students to concentrate on specific techniques with the help of expert specialist tutors. On all courses we aim to offer the practical guidance needed for participants to make the most of their own creative ideas in this professional, friendly and well-equipped environment. Courses are for adults and numbers are limited to ensure comfortable workspace. The Print Workshop appreciates the technical skills and sharing of expertise, which typify our tutors’ approach. Tutors are well known and respected in their fields for the quality of their own work and their teaching skills. Many have work in national collections and are published authors on many aspects of printmaking. The quality of their contribution and the range of their experience ensure a first class standard of creative and practical guidance.
