Learn how to create a series of prints using a variety of printing techniques in this six week course, based in the Chatsworth Garden art studio – the Old Potting Shed. Enjoy limited access to the garden during the closed season to inspire your work.

The course will cover a variety of techniques over the sessions, including observational drawing techniques, safe use of tools, mark making, transferring your design and printing techniques. 

Week 1: Monoprints
Drawing from pot plants grown in the service glasshouse at Chatsworth, this is a great way to practice your drawing and mark making skills whilst getting to know your equipment and learning how ink responds to line and pressure.

Week 2: Linocut prints
Carry out observational drawing and develop these in the studio to design and prepare your first linocut. Create prints on different surfaces and explore collaged grounds to print on to.

Week 3: Reduction lino printing
Learn the reduction lino technique to apply multiple colours to one print. Create a registration board, design your reduction print and start to create your limited-edition prints.

Week 4: Reduction lino printing continued
Complete your limited edition set of reduction lino prints.

Week 5: Texture & Shape
Experimental printing with a range of textured surfaces and shapes. Using found objects, leaves and recycled materials, create a series of exciting abstract imagery.

Week 6: Collagraph printing
Using drawings to design and create a new collagraph plate for printing and/or explore your favourite print techniques and develop a series of images to complete the course.

Please meet at the top garden gates (near the Stables) at 1.20pm before each session. Tea and coffee will be provided.
