Classes, Courses & Workshops
Drypoint Printing Workshop
Sunday 27th October, 10-4pm, £65

Join local printmaker and tutor, Christine Felce, for a creative day, learning the art of drypoint printmaking.

Drypoint printmaking is like etching but without using acid. You will create an image on a plastic plate by texturing and indenting the surface with etching tools. Your plate will initially be printed onto damp paper in monochrome. During the course Christine will show you ways of adding colour layers to your image and combining glued on textures to experiment with.

You will get to use an etching press during the course. The technique is perfect for producing lovely, atmospheric images to take home with you. Please bring sketchbooks, drawings or simple ideas/images that you wish to incorporate into your print. Christine will give you lots of support and help you with ideas for your work.

Please wear old clothes or an apron for the day. All materials are included in this creative workshop.
