Course content

What will you study on the MA Printmaking?

Each module is designed to be flexible, allowing you to bring your own printmaking interests to the assignments while extending the boundaries of your current artistic practice through experimentation, research, analysis, and creative exploration. The majority of this course is centred around developing and fully completing a substantial body of print-based work towards an external public exhibition. This will be supported by research reports and regular presentations on the progress of the project.

In the print workshop there is a large collection of metal and wood type, the possibility of working with printed textiles, and other unconventional approaches to printmaking. You can also learn to use the CAD workshop, including laser-cutting machines and several different 3D printers.

What will you gain?

You will have direct applied experience of relief, silk screen, lithography, etching and printing as well as modern digital printing techniques. You will have experience of making, displaying and promoting your printwork to a professional standard. You will also develop the skills to undertake detailed contextual research which will inform your work.

You will gain expertise in printmaking which can be applied to design, craft and other forms of art work. You will also gain a broad knowledge of printmaking history and practice which you will be able to apply to all your future creative practice and research. The course will give you a professional grounding toward a future career in printmaking or any other artistic or creative industry.
