The aim of this course is to provide a forum for sharing thoughts, influences and approaches through an intensive period of working alongside one another. We will explore the collaborative potential of printmaking and will work together to create an experimental print studio for the production of new art and ideas.

Over the course of three weeks, our studio will be used to pursue both individual and collective approaches. An introduction to mono-printing and screen-printing techniques will form a basis for an explorative approach to print, and we will devise alternative printing processes of our own making. Hands-on production will be complemented by regular group discussion to give us an opportunity to share material that matters to each of us. What matters to you? How is it reflected in how you live, what you make, who you associate with? What do you promote? What do you refuse? What do you question? Are you heard? Do you want to be heard?

We will discuss these and other questions, and reflect upon topics ranging from the history of print to the dissemination of knowledge, social and political activism and art.
