Introduction to Printmaking

To date, I have concentrated on linocut (relief printing) and etching & aquatint (intaglio). I wanted to broaden my knowledge of the other relief printing techniques to see what would be of interest. With this in mind, I have just spent the last twelve months learning about these. For this I have to thank Susan Yeates at Magenta Sky for her excellent course, “Introduction to Printmaking”, that combines a comprehensive, hard copy guide with a series of demonstration videos. Details can be found by clicking here.

The course modules cover the following topics:

  • Introduction
  • Studio Space and Materials
  • Drawing for Print and Research
  • Monoprinting 1
  • Monoprinting 2
  • Collograph and Found Object Printing
  • Linocut
  • Woodcut
  • Advanced Relief Printing
  • Drypoint
  • Simple Screenprinting
  • Wood Engraving
  • What’s Next
