About this event

We deal with printed images every day. Anything that is made in a reproducible format is a print; photocopies, posters, photographs, band t-shirts etc.

Fine art print has been traditionally defined through the technical processes of relief, intaglio, lithography and screen printing. The line between print art and other printed forms has been blurred as artists re-examine the traits that define print practice, with the proliferation of digital processes playing a major part.

This class teaches a process-based approach to making prints, covering the technical aspects of screenprinting, and looking at how the process informs the strategy of making art; at how the medium or the technique exists as the means to realise an idea. 

These classes are suitable for beginners through to experienced artists who want to focus on the particular technique of screen printing.

Screenprinting classes are taught by Sam Ovens.
