Taster Session

Taster Session

Course date: Sat 11 January or Sat 7 March.

If you're not sure of which one of our courses to try, this session explains the main types of etching, relief printing, screen printing and photography and includes a tour of the equipment in the studio. You will also have a chance to try some simple processes. 

What will be covered?
A variety of print processes such as linocut, etching, photography and lithography will be demonstrated. Participants will be able to try some of the simpler stages and produce prints. The idea is to give a flavour of how our courses and workshops feel and show the sort of results that could be achieved. Processes such as screen-print, which are not demonstrated, will be presented as sample prints and described verbally. A wide range of artist’s prints will be on display.

What should I bring?
We provide everything you'll need, just bring yourself!

What should I wear?
Wear old clothes, just in case, as the inks used may not wash out of clothes. Please note no sandals or open-toed footwear in the Print Studio. We'll provide aprons and vinyl gloves.


Please ensure you have read our Print Studio Terms and Conditions before booking on to any of our Print Studio courses or workshops.
