Printmaking

Description

This course aims to develop your ideas for prints through drawing and experimenting with your printmaking techniques in relief prints, especially woodcuts and polystyrene prints and also mono prints stencil and simple screen prints.   A basic understanding of printmaking would be useful but not necessary.  Beginners are welcome.  We will supply a press, some inks, tools, plates/blocks, other materials and papers.  Please give the tutor $15 towards the cost of these materials and bring an old shirt and a 4B or 6B pencil.  Diane was formerly an HoD of Art and Art History in Christchurch High Schools and an Education Officer at the Christchurch Art Gallery where she guides and occasionally teaches.
