Drypoint - 5 July

Service Description

Drypoint is a process whereby you scratch into the surface of your plate and the resulting mark then holds the ink which is subsequently put under great pressure to release the ink onto your paper. It gives a slightly characteristic ‘fuzzy’ edge, due to the ink sitting in the burr of the engraved line. We will cover basic drypoint techniques combined with à la poupée printing (selective inking in different colours) and Chine Collé (incorporating coloured tissue paper) Classes can be extended until 4pm for an extra £10. Booking is essential as places are limited. All materials provided. Taught by Wendy Tate.
