This course is an introduction to the basic skills and techniques associated with relief printing processes such as lino and woodcuts. Using a combination of autographic (drawing) and reprographic techniques, hand tools and machines, students will develop a body of work in the studio over the course of the semester. To complement the studio-based delivery, students will participate in lectures and tutorials contextualising relevant conceptual, historical and contemporary practices. Work health and safety instruction is an integral component of this course.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- competently utilise a range of skills relevant to relief printing in response to set tasks;
- independently explore the potential of materials relevant to relief printing;
- experiment with the application of concepts and processes relevant to press-based printmaking; and
- demonstrate use of relevant historical traditions and conventions across the field of relief printing and their relationship to contemporary art.
