This printmaking course poses the question ‘Can art be a force for social change?’. Taking inspiration from the work in Theaster Gates: Amalgam, printmaker Colette Whittington will help you to develop your own response to the place you call home. Experiment with collagraph printmaking techniques, recycled materials, carborundum and a printing press. All abilities welcome, no previous experience necessary.
