Join artist and printmaker Marieke Dench for DRYPOINT – INTAGLIO PRINTING, a 4 week workshop suitable for beginners to experienced!
Drypoint is one of the most versatile print mediums where you create your image directly onto the plate. Intaglio refers to the printmaking process of making incisions or indents in a plate, ink is applied then wiped off, and the ink that remains caught in the incisions creates the image. The process of incising for drypoint creates a slightly raised ragged rough edge to the lines, known as the burr.
This workshop is a great introduction to intaglio printing with Marieke guiding you through the complete process, from exploring and selecting appropriate materials to work with, through to creating a limited edition print. All materials are supplied including ink, paper and tools.
