Degree-level printmaking distance learning with OCA

Putting your name to an edition, out there for all to see brings a sense of achievement for any budding printmaker.

Printmaking itself has a rich history, and innumerable cultural contexts, allowing for a broad and rewarding learning journey as you try out new experiences you may not have been exposed to.

Through a printmaking course, you’ll explore engraving, etching, wood-relief, monoprint and more to create exciting new designs and templates enabling you to create editions. Even within each edition, each single issue can take on its own life creating a dynamic set of images.

What is an online printmaking course?

Some higher education institutions, such as OCA, offer UK printmaking course programmes remotely – giving access to just about anyone, anywhere around the world. Online printmaking courses can also offer all the expert support you would find with a traditional printmaking course, but with additional flexibility that makes them incredibly accessible for people in a variety of circumstances.

By taking an online printmaking course or a remote learning degree programme that incorporates printmaking – you can pursue your printmaking journey, broadening your skills and understanding, while you continue to honour any personal or professional responsibilities you may already have.

OCA offer printmaking courses as part of our complete degree-level arts programmes. Printmaking is a key element of Fine Art practice, something you can learn about on our BA (Hons) Fine Art degree, but also in combination with our BA (Hons) Drawing, and BA (Hons) Painting degrees.

It also has application in Illustration, Photography, and Visual Communications, with our respective degrees offering opportunities to explore printmaking in their contexts. You could even combine printmaking with another distinctive creative practice on our BA (Hons) Creative Arts degree.
