Full Day Drypoint with chine coll\u00e9 workshop AWOL studios, Hope Mill
Drypoint is a printmaking technique similar to engraving. Over this workshop you will design, carve and print your own unique designs.
About this Event

Drypoint is an intaglio printmaking technique whereby a design is scratched into a perspex or metal plate. These scratches create a burr, which holds ink. Damp paper is then pressed deep into these lines, transferring the design to the paper.

It is an easy technique to grasp, produces beautiful soft, velvety lines and can be combined with other techniques to add colour.

Absolutely no previous experience of painting or drawing is necessary to enjoy this fascinating and relaxing workshop.

As far as the design is concerned, any line drawing will work well - it's a fantastic technique for making expressive marks! Extra areas of colour can be introduced with other techniques such as chine collé which I will explain further in the workshop.

For our purposes, we will be using perspex. The advantage of this is that you can bring a design with you, and place the perspex over the top and draw the image.

These workshops are open to complete beginners as well as those who have some experience.

On this workshop you will design, carve and print your own design.
