Original printmaking is one of the most exciting ways to create artworks and on this course you will learn some of the traditional skills and methods available to the printmaker and discover how to combine them to create innovative, contemporary prints. Line, texture, colour and form can be brought together using intaglio and relief techniques, repeat prints and monotype. By the end of the six weeks you will not only have a good knowledge of various different printmaking methods but have also had the time to experiment with ways of layering them together to form totally original works of art.

Hester will share the knowledge gained from her own experience to help participants mix and match different techniques to best effect. Over the six week course, participants will have the chance to develop their own ideas and discover their preferred working practices.

What to expect

A weekly course at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create and develop your skills. The weekly format allows you to develop your work and ideas between sessions, you can work more at your own pace and really feel you have moved on from week one to the end.

You can expect the usual warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet and get to know like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences.

There may be two courses going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the others are up to!

Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-session break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. Due to the requirement for change-overs between morning/afternoon/evening sessions for weekly courses, the finish time given is fairly crucial – the session should not overrun.

All refreshments are included before and during the session each week although lunch is not. However, by popular demand we do provide a light lunch consisting of soup or similar and a pudding from 12:00pm until just after 1:00pm so that anyone attending either morning or afternoon sessions need not go hungry! The cost is £5 and it can be booked and paid for each week for the following week. It would be helpful if you could let us know if you require lunch for week 1.

What you’ll need to bring with you

Wear clothes you don't mind getting messed up.
Feel free to bring any examples of work that inspires you or other work of your own.
A sketchbook would be handy but not essential.

“It was fab. I really enjoyed the workshops and the hospitality is great!”
