Drypoint Printmaking Workshop with Sue Coleman

09dec11:00 amDrypoint Printmaking Workshop with Sue Coleman

Event Details

Drypoint is the simplest and most direct of the intaglio processes. The technique is an etching process where an image is scratched into a metal or plastic plate with a drypoint tool to create an image. In drypoint, it is the ‘burr’ created by a scratching process that holds the ink and transfers the image when printed through a press. The more prominent the burr the darker the line.

You do not need to be an experienced artist to take part in this workshop as the instructor will be bringing a variety of images for inspiration or tracing. Please feel free to bring your own photographs of flowers, landscapes etc…

The objectives of this workshop are:

  • To provide an accessible art form that is easy to master!
  • To enable participants to have a finished plate and copies within one session.
  • To use a printing system and materials which are affordable if participants wish to carry on at home.

This workshop is for adults only. £40 per person.

(The Gallery is situated at the top of Fore Street, Moretonhampstead, close to the Parish Church. Parking is in the Court Street and Station Road car parks.)
