At the end of the course you will leave with a set of delicate, yet experimental art works.
What is a Drypoint?
Drypoint is an intaglio method of printmaking. Intaglio means ‘to incise’. A tool is used to scratch a design into the surface of the plate. This creates a burr along the edge of the scratched line which gives a drypoint its distinctive soft, velvety line. Ink is then rubbed into the incised lines and the printed using a press.
Participants will be working on A5 size plates.
All materials will be provided, however if participants have their own water based paints or drawing inks do feel free to bring these along. The tutor will bring examples of the work and a series of objects for participants to use as inspiration for their prints.
