introduction to printmaking using methods easily done at home with
minimal equipment. We will explore printing with different surfaces
incorporating relief printing, stamp printing with hand made blocks and
vegetables! Try monoprinting making layered coloured images using
drawing and stencils. This will be a course encouraging playing,
experimentation and invention emphasising that nothing is wrong! What
you will have at the end is a vocabulary that could enable card making,
invitations, parcel labels and tags as well as prints to go in a frame.
