What you'll learn

During this short course you will learn how to use this versatile technique and be introduced to a variety of different drypoint plates to try out. Experimentation can result in soft subtle lines, deep dark velvety lines (burrs) or energetic lines, making drypoint a highly expressive medium. This course is suitable for beginners or those wishing to refresh their skills. It is an ideal starting point for anyone wanting to become a member of Northern Print and begin to use the studio independently.
