Traininee Teachers

Trainee teachers from King Alfreds College Winchester came along to the gallery to see what resources would be available for them to use in the future.

The following steps allow for this printmaking process to be accesible for children of all ages:
Prepare an image to print on A4 white paper
Have ink/rollers ready to use
Model printmaking process to a group around a central table
Have print stations on each table.

1) Engrave pattern onto pressprint tile.

2) Roll on first colour & print onto coloured sugar paper twice*

3) Engrave onto tile again, take out pieces of the tile leaving areas of previous colour.

4) Register tile with first print - place tile face down, creating final print.

* By creating two prints of the first colour but only 'finishing' one print using a second colour, the children can clearly see the development of the process.
