Please note that short courses are not intended as stand-alone access courses.
Due to the short nature of this course, we do lots of the preparation for you and streamline the process so you get a finished print at the end of the day. This does mean that you will need more training before you are self-sufficient in this process and able to work in the studio without assistance.
To use Edinburgh Printmakers open access studio facilities, you will need to attend a weekend course or have some 1-1 training or an induction before becoming an associate member. How much further training is required is based on each individual’s previous printmaking experience.
We run all our courses with small course numbers to ensure maximum hands-on activity.
Please read our course booking terms and conditions on cancellation etc before booking.
