What you will need

Learners will need to provide their own paper and inks although some will be available for the first session. Materials can be expensive for printmaking, for example, one sheet of paper can be £3, and one tub of 10ml ink can be over £15 with postage on top. They are sourced from particular manufacturers and generally cannot be bought in local art shops. General art materials such as pens, pencils, scissors, craft knives and so on are essential for this class. Your tutor can advise you about your material needs.
