Drypoint Taster Session

13th August 2022 - 13th August 2022

Drypoint etching is a printing process where lines or marks are scratched or inscribed into a surface which is then printed from. It is usually by the intaglio method, where the incisions are filled with ink and printed from, rather than the relief method which prints from the surface. On this taster session you will make a series of prints using the drypoint technique. You will learn how to use drypoint etching tools on plastic and aluminium sheets, oil based inks and our two etching printing presses in the workshop. At the end of the session you will have a series of similar, but increasingly more complex, prints.
