The teacher was vert friendly and the teaching material was really practical
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!
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.
