by Jeff - July 2017

The staff need to be better trained when it comes to giving out the wrong information! Too few staff on a really busy day leads to a lot of of mistakes and confusion. Question-Why give out the wrong prospectus knowing full well that the course I wanted was not due out till October later in the year. Complete waste of Time!

This course is more of an 'open studio' where you can create (or attempt to) whatever you like and the tutor is there to advise and guide you. Which is exactly what I wanted! As a complete beginner you are not patronised--perfect.

Facilities

Everything is perfect, although a little lazy at times.

Student life

Again very good. Have made friends there, most have been going for two years plus, it's almost part of my social life!

As a complete beginner I had no idea of what to expect but I've been guided through the many different ways to create objects with clay. My teacher was clear and gave us good direction but without hampering our creativity. He got the balance between giving me the space to learn many different techniques without ever leaving me at a loss of what to do. He was fun, full of ideas and incredibly talented in his own right which cannot fail to inspire.

Facilities

The room we mainly work in is quite small and could be extended although I've never felt overcrowded. They have a good range of facilities and seem to have a really good system going.

Student life

There is a real mix of people who attend the class which is refreshing. Some have been studying for years and some are beginners. It is great how everyone shares ideas and feeds off each other's enthusiasm. I love the class and find my time there very therapeutic.

Screenprinting for the first time
5 5
Hotcourses
by Drew - October 2006

The first half of the course is structured so that I could experience a range of stencil making techniques within the non-photographic and the photographic spheres. Beginning with autographic (non-photographic) stencil making, we dealt with paper stencilling, direct stencilling using wax crayon / liquid filler and wax resist. We then moved on to learn about the different ways of making a photographic stencil, through the use of hand drawn positives and photographic positives. Practising with these methods was great for planning a print. We also covered setting up your workspace, ink mixing / colour mixing, paper handling, monoprinting and editioning. The second part of the course was more structured around the individual application of these techniques. Together we worked towards strengthening our image making skills. Now that I have attended the All Levels class, you intend to join the ?Advanced screenprinting? class. You could study one of the other printmaking disciplines, either etching or lithography. Enrolling in one of the digital media courses, such as ?Photoshop? or ?Desktop Publishing? would be useful, as they also output to print.
