Learn about different printmaking techniques, how a printing press works and print your own masterpieces in this fun one-day course!
What will you learn on this course?
On this one-day course, children will learn about two brilliant printmaking processes, one with, and one without a print press. The tutor will introduce a range of techniques including monoprint and collagraph printing, and help participants to use these processes to create their own unique prints!
Children on this course will have the opportunity to learn all about how a printing press works, and watch their work be printed by the course tutor.
Participants will work from images, or use their own imagination to create their own printed masterpieces, and by the end of the day will have made up to 5 unique prints to take home.
