Perfect for complete print beginners or artists looking to broaden their practice and develop image ideas into a print context.

Drypoint is a great place to start!

What is Drypoint?
Dry point is a versatile printmaking process which involves etching an image into a polycarbonate plate ready for printing. Using etching tools you will carve the surface with your design, creating a beautiful and unique textured plate to print multiple editions from.

You will then learn how to choose inks, ink your plate and print it using an etching press. This technique is perfect for getting lovely atmospheric images with the application of ink, helping you loosen up and enjoy all that dry point has to offer.

This printmaking process can be added to with watercolour, to give your prints a colourful touch.

What to bring:
- Photographs and drawings of your favourite landscape, or anything that will help you feel inspired.
- Sketch book, pencils, eraser
- An apron or an old shirt
- If you have a dremel, bring it along! These are excellent tools for experimentation, but not essential.
- If you have some, a set of watercolours and small brushes (also not essential).
- Your lunch, and a gold coin for a cuppa!

There is a materials cost of $25, payable to the tutor in cash on the day.

This includes:
- A dry point needle for you to keep
- Tracing paper/newsprint
- An A5 polycarbonate plate
- Use of special intaglio inks at the workshop
- Mull cloth for wiping back the ink on the plate
- A supply of wet strength paper to print on
