Each course is packed with explanatory videos plus the bonus of detailed downloadable notes for you to print and keep.

Whether you are a beginner, an established printmaker or artist you will find our information to the point, practical and easy to understand.

We are alongside you for the first 8 weeks in our 'members only' Private Facebook group.  Here you can ask questions, get feedback and connect directly with Robin & Annie and your fellow students.

Our processes are far less toxic to the printmaker than traditional printmaking.

Proceed at your own pace

You may choose to immerse yourself and complete the course over two or three weeks, or take time working your way through the lessons over several weeks.

We consider your best option is to view it all to get a feel of the technique then go back and do each lesson in order. There will be some setting up explained in detailed videos and downloadable notes when the course goes live - it's good to get this foundation, an integral part, under your belt - then the lessons will run very smoothly.

 

On the start date you will have access to the Course. You can view the lessons at your own pace, refresh and replay anytime you like.


For ongoing tuition, the Sisters will be available in the private Facebook Group for 8 weeks after enrolments close and you can email us at any time. 

Robin & Annie have condensed and streamlined years of their research and practice into every module.  

Expect to master each aspect of the technique by the time you finish all the exercises.

The Sisters and their students love this printmaking technique.  Compared to many other methods it is fast and simple and has a wide range of effects that are easy to acquire.

During the Waterless Lithography course we show you how to print using a pasta maker, a craft press & a  Japanese baren.

About the Techniques

Nik Semenoff, inventor of these revolutionary printmaking techniques, said that when he set out to create his new process he wanted to:

 "Eliminate the toxic materials used by printmakers of the day. Dangerous substances were replaced by inexpensive, readily  available materials that simplified the processing of plates and produced clean, long running images from direct hand drawn plates."

These days we can all enjoy the fruits of Nik’s labour as we discover and work with this amazing printmaking technique.

If you ever wondered how to get started with waterless lithography but got mixed messages or thought it was too difficult, our Waterless Lithography course has the answers.

We taught ourselves – it took more than 6 months of intensive trial and error at first but we triumphed and learned so much in the process. During that time we made every mistake you can imagine - we show you how to avoid all that.

For the past 15 years we have been teaching the technique to many satisfied students.

By concentrating on the successes and skipping the downfalls we help you become proficient in the waterless process at your own speed.

Preparations for your Course

Before the start date when the excitement is building and the Course goes live, there will be a list of requirements which should be reasonably easy to assemble no matter where you live. We know this will definitely give you a head start.
 
At the same time you can connect with fellow students from around the world in the private Facebook group. Our new friends around the world will also be helpful in assisting you to find anything you need. Robin & Annie are first in to help you every step of the way.

This is how your new printmaking adventure begins.
