Which printmaking class is right for you
Understanding which class to choose can be confusing, with various techniques and materials involved. Here is our guide to the techniques and highlights of different printmaking styles, so you can find the one that is just right -
- Relief Printing - a process involving the etching of a surface so that all raised (uncut) areas have ink applied to them to produce the design that is to be printed.
Woodblock Printing - originating in China, this is the oldest known form of printing for textiles and paper. Find out how to make your own blocks in our block printing workshops, and learn the art that gave birth to the modern printing press.
Linocut - this technique uses linoleum sheets instead of wood blocks, and is widely used to introduce kids to printmaking due to its ease. Whether you are a beginner or a parent looking for printmaking courses for your kids find a linocut workshop near you for the perfect introduction.
Collagraph - another technique that is suitable for all levels, this method uses a board with collage materials glued on to create a textured relief surface. Collagraph provides a fun and creative way to produce abstract art.
Intaglio - designed as the opposite of relief printing, this technique has the image incised into a surface, with the incised line or sunken area holding the ink.
Etching - this technique is one for those with existing knowledge or a passion for the printmaking process. In an etching workshop, you will be using different chemicals, such as acids, to incise your design onto a metal plate. Join our etching courses to learn the art of Rembrandt and Goya.
Drypoint - using the same techniques as drawing, this method uses a ‘needle’ of metal or diamond as a pencil to incise designs into a plate. This printmaking class is perfect for anyone with traditional drawing skills.
Collagraph - this method is very versatile, and learning the technique to remove ink from the upper surface allows for an intaglio print instead of a relief one.
Serigraphy - commonly known as silk screen printing, this method involves forcing ink through a fine screen onto paper. It is easy to learn and has various applications from textiles to electronics, and many more.
