Printmaking as a creative activity has a long and distinguished history. It has provided a multi-faceted vehicle for an enormously diverse range of artists, from Durer to Warhol, to explore an equally diverse range of issues and ideas. The qualifications, whilst allowing students to build on prior experience, will require them to face up to new intellectual and material experiences and challenges designed to deliver an independent critical understanding and extended skills base.

In order to achieve a Level 3 Award in Printmaking students must complete two units

  • Unit 7 Level 3 Principles of Printmaking (compulsory)

In addition, one optional unit from:

  • Unit 8 Level 3 Intaglio Printmaking
  • Unit 9 Level 3 Relief Printmaking
  • Unit 11 Level 3 Screen Printing

All units will be internally assessed and moderated against the assessment criteria for those units.

Students are required to achieve a pass grade in each unit to qualify for an overall qualification grade.

Participants can also move on to use the open access printmaking facilities available through the Regional Print Centre to further develop their work. They can also progress to specialist visiting Artists Workshops which take place regularly throughout the year.
