Printing Courses

After the success of last year’s Collagraph Printing Weekend with Pam Hardman, Pam has returned with her Viscosity Inks, for another weekend of drawing, inking, layering and printing! You will be taken step-by-step through the process of creating your plates and using intaglio and relief methods to create beautiful prints.

September sees Karen’s Printing Techniques & Mixed Media weekend, we’re very excited about this course because you get to a little bit of everything! From printing and transferring onto paper and fabric to collage, stencilling, inking and hand-stitching.

Collagraph Printing & Viscosity Inks Weekend with Pam Hardman

Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd September, 10am – 4pm

On the first day, we will learn to make Collagraph plates to create highly embossed, sculptural imagery.

We will use various malleable and sculptural materials to create a range of marks, tones and textures on the plates.

Working on one or two plates we will print from the plates, using an etching press, and cover mixing inks, combining colours, over printing, masking, intaglio and relief methods of printing.

On the second day we will continue printing from the plates using various methods including viscosity inking to produce beautifully embossed, richly coloured prints

Printing Techniques & Mixed Media Weekend with Karen Carter


Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th September, 10am – 4pm

A fun weekend exploring a variety of printing and transfer techniques, suitable for use on both paper and fabric.

Combine these experiments with collage, stencilling, ink and hand-stitch to produce a wealth of inspiring samples, ready to make into a unique book, or a series of small art pieces.

No experience necessary, just a willingness to play! Lots of demos and individual help available. Wear old clothes and bring a notebook and basic sewing kit.

It would also be useful to come with a theme in mind, for example: ‘seashore finds’ or ‘seed heads’ and some reference images.

We will be doing Solvent Transfers, so bring along b/w photocopies (NOT inkjet prints) with image size approx A5 / A6. The tutor will bring some images too.

Age: Adults
Cost: £95 (all materials included)
