Emily Harvey: Printmaking.

Regular one and two day courses in collagraph and experimental printmaking.

Courses take place in my studio near York, with a maximum of 4 people to ensure everyone has space and time for 1-1 tuition. The atmosphere is friendly and informal, encouraging people to share ideas and learn from each other.

Everyone makes several plates and a mini portfolio of about 10 – 15 completed prints to take home.

You will learn technical skills and techniques as well as developing confidence in your own creativity.

All the short courses aim to free up thinking and technique, encouraging an inquisitive experimental approach that can feed back into your own creative work, whatever that may be. They are suitable for all levels of experience (or none) unless otherwise indicated.

Please see my website for more details;  www.emilyharvey.co.uk
