Printmaking makes a vital contribution to the language of contemporary art practice. Advances in printmaking technology have broadened the definitions of the medium, enabling artists to combine traditional print processes with digital media towards a wide range of creative solutions. The course provides technical inductions for traditional and emerging print media, including relief printing and intaglio processes, screenprint, photolithography and digital processes. Professional engagement in the field of printmaking and fine art practice is embedded within all modules and supported by field trips, links to galleries and a strong profile of visiting lecturers to the course.
Postgraduate students of MA Printmaking can benefit from a number of career opportunities. In addition to developing successful careers within the creative field, graduates have followed pathways in further and higher education, museum and gallery management, public arts projects, artist in residence schemes and fellowships opportunities both in this country and abroad.
