Printmaking: Media and Methods FFD308



Subject to enrolment quota


This unit draws on the traditions of printmaking such as intaglio and relief.  While none of these practices continue in their original form or context, contemporary artists continue to be inspired by the technologies and practice.

Students will be introduced to the basic techniques that underpin the above practices.  They will then have the opportunity to explore a self-defined theme through one or more of the above processes.
