Drypoint Printmaking Workshop
Saturday 24th February
10am - 3pm
All Materials and eqiupment provided.

What is drypoint?

Drypoint is an ‘intaglio’ printmaking process; drypoint uses a sharp tool to scratch marks into the surface of an acrylic sheet. A print is taken from ink which is held within these marks which we will make using our lovely large press. A great introductory technique for those interested in Intaglio printmaking.

What experience do I need?

This one day workshop is aimed at the complete beginner but is also suitable for those who have experience and want to get creative and inky in our studio using our large press. What to expect on the day We will provide all equipment and materials: paper and inks and images to work from. We will introduce you to the technique and talk you through the process to help you design your own print. Using images supplied, you will make a tracing into the acetate using the special etching tool. If you want to use your own images, make sure they are no larger than A6 and are appropriate for line work. We will then print muliples using different coloured inks.

Who are your tutors?

They are both practicing artists who have exhibited nationally and internationally. Do I need to bring anything? All the inks, paper, tools and equipment are provided by us. If you want to use your own images, make sure they are no larger than A6 and are appropriate for line work. Please bring your own lunch, we will provide tea and coffee.
