Experimental printmaking course
3-Day Printmaking workshop
with Amy-Jane Blackhall
Course Outline:

Take your ideas through a journey in print. This 3-day course focuses on developing and reinterpreting imagery through the combination of print processes both on and off press, with emphasis on experimentation, a painterly approach and hand finishing.

Throughout the course participants will explore various routes into transforming an idea into print using a range of direct methods that enable free expression and multiplicity, but also break boundaries of conventional modes of printmaking. 

Suitable for people with some print experience that wish to reinvigorate and push the boundaries of their current practice.

Course includes:

Complimentary packed lunch
Materials - Basic Materials are supplied. Additional specialist materials are available at cost.


Spacious Studio plus well equipped print room. You will be working on location within the 700 acres of farmland surrounding Rabley Drawing Centre.
