Our printmaking classes are suitable for all levels, from those new to printmaking to those with some prior experience. We have two printing presses and over courses in etching (aluminum), relief printing, mono printing and solar plate etching. Our regular printmaking term class is run by popular tutor Seraphina Martin on Thursdays. During the year we also host weekend workshops with well known tutors such as Karen Ball and Mellissa Read-Devine covering specialty printing techniques like wood engraving, carborundum printmaking and more.
At our school we teach ‘safe’ printmaking techniques. That is, we don’t use acid baths or aquatinting boxes with rosin.
Introduction to Printmaking with Seraphina Martin runs Thursdays from 10am-2pm
