Discovering Print at Bradford Industrial Museum

About this resource

This resource  begins to explore opportunities for teachers to incorporate printmaking and ideas from Bradford Industrial Museum and Home of Horses at Work into a scheme of work. 


Bradford Industrial Museum is a rich resource for observational drawing and sketchbook work, handling objects and practical contextual studies based on the work of artists and designers or on the eclectic collections held by the museum. Digital equipment and an interactive whiteboard are available to book to use in the museum's new Learning Centre.
