Course Duration

1 year; full-time
2 years; part-time

Our Masters programmes offer you an intensive personal programme of creative and stimulating study within a supportive critical and practical framework that enables you to examine, interrogate and reflect upon the nature and role of your chosen practice.

We encourage diversity in thinking and making, acknowledging the potential in material exploration, collaborative working, cross-fertilisation of ideas, and the exploration of new and vital concepts. Critical enquiry and practice-based exploration are central to the programmes, helping you to make dynamic and challenging work that resonates and reflects your key concerns in light of current national and international dialogues.

MA Printmaking 1

The MA Printmaking programme encourages you to test the boundaries of what can be considered a fine-art printmaking practice, to work in traditional and non-traditional modalities across a range of practices and mediums.

You will have access to our print studios, allowing you to explore a range of autographic printmaking processes, including intaglio, relief print, screenprinting, letterpress and digital processes.

You will be able to develop your practice through the context of the broadening dialogues around contemporary printmaking in light of recent and ongoing technological advances.

You will have the opportunity to critically engage with current debates within the subject area, relevant institutional contexts and partners and be encouraged to consider what it means to be an artist in the 21st century.

We’ll support you in articulating your ideas, developing your working methods and creating independent work, through individual tutorials, lectures, subject-specific seminars, studio and gallery visits and group critiques with access to our rich workshop areas and technical resources across the college.
