On this half day workshop you will be guided through the process of creating an edition of drypoint prints by experienced printmaker, tutor and owner of DelARTful Designs Printmaking Studio.
Drypoint is an intaglio print where a sharp needle tool is used to scratch a design into the surface of a sheet of drypoint plastic. As the plastic is transparent the reference image is placed underneath and traced with the tool. Ink is then rubbed into the scratched lines and printed on an etching press.
My workshops are suitable for complete beginners to printmaking, the focus is on the process of making a printing plate to create a print from, not at all a test of drawing skill. I teach in small groups of four in a very relaxed and supportive environment so that there is plenty of opportunity for 1:1 tuition too.
