Printmaking Foundations: Contemporary and Traditional Techniques

8 Week Short Course at The National Art School, 2023

Explore a range of traditional and non-traditional printmaking processes including relief printing, intaglio etching and screen-printing. Annabelle McEwen will introduce you to traditional, contemporary and experimental approaches to printmaking, including some that can be practised in your own home studio. Learn to integrate different processes such as stencilling, layering, chine colle, frottage, image transfers and embossing. Annabelle instructs you with all the technical information you’ll need to learn about printing materials, surfaces, methodologies and how to edit your own print run. This course is designed for students with limited experience of printmaking techniques, who want to begin their journey into an exciting and challenging artform, and develop their skill set in the medium in a fun and supportive studio environment.
