Course Summary

This course is best known for its experimental, forward-thinking approach to printmaking today and the future of the printed artefact. With a focus on making, you can explore and experiment with a diverse mix of traditional and emerging fine art printmaking media and develop ideas through processes such as laser cutting, enamelling, electronics, wood engraving and lithography. You will study alongside a broad base of students with diverse backgrounds in a professional, well-connected, research-active environment with full access to specialist facilities (some of the best in the country) and support from highly regarded master printers, practicing artists and researchers.

This degree is an ideal springboard for professional artist-printmakers looking to extend their practice and also for those with less print-based experience to explore and experiment creatively, and gain valuable real world experience through the Professional Practice module. You will study in a creative, vibrant city with active arts communities and opportunities for collaboration and public engagement and gain valuable industry-insight from high profile visiting speakers from creative industries including Emma Stibbon, Sue Gregor and Otto Graphic. Students can exit with PGCert award.
