Learn the basic techniques of printmaking with this course

Against the backdrop of Tate Liverpool’s Collection Displays, this 7 week course will introduce the basic techniques of printmaking; focusing on how the process of print media can inform the strategy of art making. 

Through a series of practical workshops and group discussions, led by Printmaker and Artist Educator Colette Whittington, the course will respond to the Tate collection with hands on printmaking techniques that can be reproduced at the kitchen table at home.

Participants will be introduced to basic intaglio and relief printmaking processes; monoprint, collatype, and lino cutting. They will be guided to produce their own individual design ideas using experimental methods and demonstrating good print practice. Programmed in association with the Workers’ Educational Association.
