We offer high quality tuition by experienced, practicing artists, and we keep groups small, (maximum of eight), to give you a more practical and hands on experience. We welcome all – from complete beginners through to experienced printmakers, and all course prices include basic materials. The course programme comprises of:
Printmaker’s Toolkit Sessions One-hour talk/demo sessions by practicing artist printmakers
Taster Sessions & day workshops 3 – 6-hour workshops which introduce you to specific techniques. These are hands on, inky, creative and experimental sessions.
Weekend Courses, Summer Schools & Masterclasses 10+ hour workshops which are intended to really immerse you in a particular technique, to get you to a stage where you are able to join the workshop as a member and continue using the facilities to make and develop your own work.
Quotes from course participants:
“A fantastic weekend. Tutor was extremely knowledgeable and helpful, always happy to give constructive advice but also made you feel as though you had freedom to experiment. A really relaxed atmosphere and a brilliant facility. Thank you to everyone involved.”
“An excellent workshop! Well-paced with an enthusiastic and knowledgeable tutor, and a good variety of art materials to support the session”
“I thought the course was very good and will inspire me and others to go further into screen printing. As a taster course I thought it definitely laid the foundations.” “The tutor was very accomplished in delivering this course. She delivered all the course content well and also provided very personal tuition to a class of mixed ability and interests. I would recommend this to anyone at all interested, to dip their toes in. I was extremely pleased and surprised what can be accomplished through such a short course. I will miss my Wednesday nights at Mirfield!”
