Course Instructor(s): Vicki Senior is a printmaker, art educator and creative producer for children and young people at WYPW. With a diverse creative practice, her experience encompasses a broad spectrum of printmaking techniques from screen-printing through to letterpress and most recently the intaglio processes of drypoint printing using TetraPak.
Holding an MA in Multidisciplinary Printmaking from the University of West England, her approach to print is experimental with a specific interest around the combination of text and image through the translation of traditional process to both graphic design and the production of artist books. Informed by her background in design and commercial processes, Vicki brings an openness and enthusiasm to working with new techniques and is particularly excited to investigate new ideas via the recently acquired risograph machine at West Yorkshire Print Workshop hoping to further her knowledge and experience of zine making.
A former art teacher; Vicki is keen to spread the joy of printmaking to the next generation of creatives! Whether that’s through developing playful, printed characters with her daughter or encouraging families and young people to get involved and express themselves through the medium of inky play. Vicki currently practices from her kitchen table in Slaithwaite and here at WYPW.
