UnLtd Print Academy

2 Weekends Course

This course is not currently on the schedule

Tutor: Sean Rorke & Lois Gilbert

About the course:

This special course over 2 weekends marks the culmination of the Print UnLtd exhibition at Salford Museum & Art Gallery. Not the usual type of course, but more of a printmaking art school. We will be taking over the whole of the workshop and immersing ourselves in different ways of working, seeing, building compositions and discovering alternative ways to make your mark, compose an image and express yourself. Each day will be focused on different aspects of making art;

day 1 Line and markmaking
day 2 Shape & composition
day 3 Colour & overprinting
day 4 Text & image

You will work across screenprint, drypoint, monoprint, collagraph, etching and relief printing. You are expected to have some basic understanding of print processes, but there will be demonstrations and hands-on tutoring in aspects of each method and different approaches to each. The course will be interspersed with exercises and mini-projects looking at content and context throughout the 4 days. At the end of each day there will be a mini-critique and summary of work produced and ‘where to next’ plus bite sized homework ideas.

Maximum of 16 people
