The Foundation in Printmaking.

We are delighted to be the only printmaking workshop in the South of England to offer this comprehensive Foundation in Printmaking. This course is ideal for people who are looking for a more in-depth course than our single technique and introductory courses. It builds on practical printmaking techniques and also covers print related areas such as printmaking papers, inks, contextual and historical printmaking, self-directed study, critique of students work, presenting and exhibiting work.
