Drypoint Printing Taster - February

Drypoint Printing Taster - February

Taster workshop
Thursday 6th February 2020
6pm – 9pm

Tutor: Cath Brooke

Come and get your hands inky and your creativity flowing in a friendly, artistic environment! This session will introduce you to the technique of drypoint, an ‘intaglio’ printmaking process, where a sharp tool is used to scratch marks into the surface of a perspex plate, and a print is taken from ink which is held within these marks. Learners will be guided through the process of plate making, inking and printing in the traditional intaglio way. This is the perfect technique for anyone who enjoys drawing and exploring qualities of line as part of their printmaking practice.

Our new taster sessions offer an introduction to some of the key printmaking techniques offered and practiced here at WYPW, and a glimpse into the processes involved in creating hand-made prints. You will be guided and encouraged by experienced artists who use printmaking in their own art practice, in a professionally equipped workshop setting.
