Course content

Transform your creative practice by engaging with print media on our Master’s course at Cambridge School of Art. You’ll use the latest techniques that have broadened the definition of what ‘printmaking’ is, work on your own projects in our world-class facilities, and get invaluable experience of exhibiting, curating and collaborating.

  • Access our specialist printmaking workshop with unique presses dating back 150 years
  • Gain contacts and industry experience through our links with art organisations including Cambridge Original Printmakers and Curwen Print Study Centre
  • Engage with debates about contemporary art practice with artists and staff
  • Attend talks by visiting printmaking professionals and other guest lecturers
  • Study in Cambridge, with its many galleries and exhibition spaces, just a quick train journey from London

Discover the vital contribution that printmaking has made to the language of contemporary art practice, and how recent technological advances have broadened its definition.

Much of your time will be spent independently researching and undertaking your own practice-based projects. You will receive technical inductions for the use of both traditional and emerging processes (including relief printing and intaglio, screen print, lithography, photo-based and digital media) and be free to experiment with, and combine, them in your creative work.

Throughout the course you will have support from experienced print and fine art practitioners, and benefit from working in a supportive and critically informed art school. Our connection with the MA Printmaking course at Camberwell College of Art creates opportunities for exchange crits and gives you the chance to build networks with fellow artists. You will also get a window onto the professional art world through our visiting lecturers, field trips and links to galleries.

Our series of workshops, tutorials, seminars, critiques, presentations and lectures, will allow you to develop research skills that you will use on this course and in your future career. In addition, you will gain experience in other areas of professional practice including curating and critical writing.

Our links with local printmaking and art organisations, such as Cambridge Original Printmakers, the Curwen Print Study Centre, Aid & Abet, Changing Spaces, Wysing Arts Centre and Cambridge Artworks, will give you the chance to take part in portfolio reviews, live projects and professional exhibitions.

Course Leader: Dr Veronique Chance.
