Printmaking for Beginners

A student ink covered hands separates a print from the printing plate to reveal the finished artwork in maroon ink on paper.

Enjoy an introduction to the art of lino cutting over 4-weeks, in our freshly updated printmaking course for Spring.

Students will be inspired by a class visit to the Albury Botanic Gardens in the first week to sketch and photograph ideas for a botanical print.

Learn how to transfer your design to a block, cut, ink and print using hand burnishing and the printing press.

At the end of the course, students will go home with a bi-fold book consisiting of each of the participants prints, as well as the skills to continue printing at home using techniques that don’t require a printing press.

All materials are provided.
