About the Event

Drypoint is an intaglio technique where a plate is incised using needle tools to create a soft velvety line and wire wool or sandpaper for tone. Similar to drawing it can be immediate and expressive. Using transparent drypoint plastic you’ll learn how to create a plate, ink and wipe the plate, pre-dampen paper and use the press to create a series of prints. You can draw and make marks freely or transfer a drawing or photograph. The wiping technique can be used in a painterly way and multiple colours can be used. Please bring images with you as inspiration or to transfer.   

Please bring:

  • An apron or old clothes you don’t mind getting ink on
  • A packed lunch
  • Something to inspire you
  • Your creativity!

Materials and refreshments will be provided.

The leaders of each workshop may ask you to prepare something ahead of the workshop, so please check your email!

For any questions about accessibility or anything else, please get in touch!
