Printmaking (CPD for Teachers)

These courses are designed for art and design teachers or for anyone interested in taking printmaking processes into a learning environment. You will be guided through technical information, be provided with handouts to help you record the processes and be given tips on how to deliver back in the classroom. Some processes will be appropriate for school classroom activities, whilst others will introduce you to the specialist equipment available in the college printmaking studio.

10-week workshop: Designed for those with a professional or personal interest in art education and teaching and would like to gain further knowledge and experience in the discipline of printmaking. You will be shown how to display final prints and development work – and encouraged to record your artwork in an A3 sketchbook which could be used as a visual teaching resource.


2-day workshop: Designed for those with a professional or personal interest in art education and teaching and would like to be introduced to basic printmaking processes. As time is limited we will be producing small and quick outcomes – the emphasis on the technique rather than extensive design development.


Both courses are ideal for for secondary school teachers, college lectures and anyone teaching adults.
