Drypoint: Short Course (Optional Stay & Play)



Drypoint is a wonderfully direct method of printmaking where the image is drawn directly into the surface of the plate. It is referred to as ‘dry’ because no acids are used. Small editions can be printed using a printing press. This simple process is perfect for anyone who enjoys drawing and would like to extend their practice into printmaking. This short course will show you how to transfer an image onto a special drypoint card plate and draw using a variety of tools before inking up and printing on a press.

Stay and Play

Return to the studio after lunch and experiment with your newly acquired printmaking skills whilst enjoying access to our printmaking press, space and materials for only £10. If you would like to attend, be sure to add this option separately in your shopping basket. Only course attendees may attend the 'stay and play'.
