Course Overview

The Printmaking course is designed to introduce you to basic printmaking techniques such as mono printing, dry point etching, lino printing and screen printing and will be taught in our specialist print studio.

On completing this qualification you will achieve a UAL Level 2 Award in Printmaking.

For the final assessment you will work towards a 6 week project allowing you to develop ideas informed by artist and subject research. You will have the opportunity to revisit printmaking techniques you have enjoyed to create a final print outcome. Your final work will be supported by mood boards, design sketches, reference images, test prints and a final evaluation recorded in your sketchbook.

During the course you will learn how to use materials, tools and equipment needed for printmaking and will be given demonstrations and technical support from the tutor. During the exploratory stage of the course you will create a collection of prints using a variety of printing methods and be encouraged to be experimental and explore different surfaces and embellishments.

You will be assessed at a Pass, Merit and Distinction level. There is no formal examination element to this course.

You will be assessed via a portfolio of work produced throughout the course.

You will develop a portfolio of work which will include mood boards, artists research, test prints, a final print and evaluation.

The course fee includes a workshop fee of GBP25, which covers the use of resources and materials.

Student Finance (Degree-Level Courses)

Whether you qualify for student finance depends on specific criteria. The main student finance package for full-time students includes a tuition fee loan and maintenance loan for living costs. Part-time students can access a tuition fee loan to pay for your course. Generally, you will only get student finance if you’re doing your first degree-level qualification. This is true even if your previous course was self-funded. For further information please see www.gov.uk/student-finance.

The Access to Learning Fund is a non-repayable discretionary fund that gives students facing hardship extra financial support to access and remain in higher education. This can is accessed via the college. Please speak to Student Services for more information.
