What is the course about?
You will build basic skills in:
- block printing
- creative lettering
Do I need to bring anything?
Bring with you whatever you may have collected at home, from biros (different colours) to felt tip pens (a range of nib sizes if you have them), pencil crayons and fountain pens, as we will experiment with using different types of tools.
As a guide, I like to use:
- Derwent fine-liner pens – a set with a range of sizes from 0.05 to 0.8
- Any rollerball pens
- Coloured pencils – I like Derwent watercolour pencils and Derwent Coloursoft pencils but any that you have will be fine. Don’t splash out. You can buy cheap sets in the £ shops
- Felt tip pens – from kid’s sets - £1 from Wilko/Poundland to a set of coloured Sharpies
- Pencil sharpener, if you have one
- Fluorescent markers are fun to use but not essential
Workbook for the workshops I would recommend bringing a simple, cheap workbook, preferably A4 in size (8.5 x 11”, 210 x 300cm) with blank pages
- Biros in a range of colours – green, red, blue, black or any other colours
- Fountain pen – I use one with black ink cartridges of soluble ink
- I like using a dip pen too, with Indian ink, which is water resistant – but this isn’t essential
Later in the course we’ll look at using printing blocks and collaging. I will bring those and we can discuss beforehand if you’ve got anything at home you could bring too.
We also ask that you take the time to read our policy on cancellation and refund of course fees. These can be found on the college website, or in the part time course brochure.
