What is Printmaking?
Printmaking is essentially the process of creating an original ‘print’, by transferring an impression from one surface to another. It is not a direct process such as drawing or painting but any method that allows an artist to create an image in one place that is then transferred to another.
Printmaking is an exciting art form which at Magenta Sky we are very passionate about. The printmaking lessons that we teach on the course combine both methodical precision with expansive room for creativity.
There are 4 main categories that the various forms of printmaking fall into - Relief(lino/woodcut, wood engraving), Intaglio (etching, drypoint, mezzotint), Stencil Based (screenprinting) and Planographic (lithography). Please read on to find out which techniques we cover on this course i.e. can be studied at home.
