More about the course

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 are 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.
