Printmaking 2018-03-21T16:15:06+00:00


An original print is one where the
Printmaker creates a piece of art
by the application and
manipulation of one or more
printmaking methods. It is not an
identical copy of a piece of
artwork, but a piece of fine art in

The printmaker uses a range of
artistic skills and judgments
throughout the whole process
from creating the blocks or
plates, choosing and mixing
colours and controlling the
variables in the printing process.
The result is an original piece of
fine art, usually for a fraction of
the price of an original painting
or drawing.
