Printmaking courses

Winter and spring 2019

PERMANENT STUDIO 

Printmaking Wednesdays (starting on 23rd January)
From 5.30 pm to 7.30 pm
Takes place on: 23.01, 30.01, 06.02, 13.02, 20.02, 27.02, 06.03, 27.03, 03.04, 24.04, 08.05, 15.05, 22.05.
On Wednesdays, we open our printmaking studio to advanced printmakers. Participants can work at their own pace and with their preferred techniques. Printmaking is exciting because you can never be sure of the exact end result. The technique used may complete half of the image on its own or may offer solutions that the artist could not have come up with. In graphic art, you do not need to draw perfectly; instead, you should enjoy the process of creating something on your own in the company of others. The process is truly captivating and usually addictive. Prints can be made for many purposes: to be hung on a wall, to be sent as postcards or to be used as bookplates. In addition to paper printing techniques, you can try creating images on cloth (T-shirts, curtains, tablecloths and much more). Any idea can be realised.

Woodcut is a relief printing technique in printmaking. An artist carves an image into the surface of a block of wood, leaving the printing parts level with the surface while removing the non-printing parts. Areas that the artist cuts away carry no ink, while characters or images at surface level carry the ink to produce the print.
The course will be held in Estonian. Questions and explanations are also possible in English.

The courses are suitable for anyone interested in graphic art who is at least 14 years of age.
