Letterpress was a convenient way of printing image and type onto paper materials using real ink. Because it is a manual process each print is unique and attractive effects can be achieved as the ink becomes less on the roller. As with all of these processes experiment is the way to produce something new from these beautiful machines.
Our screen printing facilities (currently three beds) offer the students and staff the opportunity to produce unique images onto a variety of papers and boards. A wonderful World controlling colour density and transparency apart from the image idea itself. Put an apron on and get to grips with some paint and paper in the print room. It is a wonderful opportunity and atmosphere in there.
Graphic Design just wouldn't be complete without good photographic imagery. The course has dedicated instructors to ensure that you get the most from our photographic equipment. We don't however stop with digital imagery. Rosy will want you to make the most of film cameras, bring some clean beer cans for the pin hole camera sessions, hand printing techniques and cyanotype processes to name but a few of the fun days on offer. It's all about making imagery. IMAGE Ben Tyler.
