It is a self contained class, and an opportunity to find out if you would like to join us for the rest of the term. Only one trial class is available per person per term in this course. It is not possible to attend this course on a drop-in basis. For experienced printmakers, we offer an open access printmaking workshop on Tuesday evenings which can be attended on a drop in basis.

There is a one week break at half term. The schedule can be found on our Term Timetable (please see Term Time & Holidays link above). This course takes place in our beautiful ground floor garden studio in Shepherd’s Bush, West London.

Course Description

The Printmaking with Etching Press course introduces adult students to the imaginative and unique world of printmaking. The course is led by seasoned printmaker Sally Grumbridge who takes students through everything that there is to know about printmaking and – more importantly – gets students involved in making their own prints, editioning, mounting and even exhibiting their prints if they wish.

In the term-long course you will learn all about the etching press and the different printmaking capabilities that it offers. In addition, you’ll learn multiple techniques – from intaglio processes such as dry point and collagraph to relief printing with lino or woodcut and all the bits and pieces in between. The course is a fun and exciting look into the world of printmaking led by an experienced artist and teacher. You are sure to walk away with an abundance of knowledge and skills that you can use both in printmaking and in other creative pursuits.

This specialist course boasts a small class size, offering you ample attention from the tutor.
