On booking James will send you image selection advice and request your chosen image in advance.
You will be printing an edition of six images in three colours up to A4 in size. Just 4 students so plenty of 1-1 tuition. Absolute beginners welcome.
We will explore what is required to create highly detailed halftone images in Photoshop using the photo of your choice. We will also be creating stencils in Photoshop so we are able to make 3 colour image up to A4 in size
