Aug Craft Weekend: Drypoint Printing Workshop

£25.00 (Sold out)

Sunday 4th August, 1.30-3.30pm, £25

This workshop is part of a weekend of taster sessions where you can try out different crafts!

Join local printmaker and tutor, Christine Felce, for a two hour introductory workshop on intaglio printmaking and how to use an etching press.

Intaglio is a printmaking technique where ink is pushed into lines, groves or roughened parts of the plate. The plate is printed onto dampened paper under pressure using a printing press.

You will have an A5 size plate to work with and you will be shown how to use the etching tools. You will then learn how to ink and print your plate. Christine will give you lots of support and help you with ideas for your print.

You will come away with several beautiful handmade prints and a plate that you can continue to use at home.

All materials included for this creative activity. Please wear old clothes or bring an old apron to wear on the day.

We can accept other methods of payment, please get in touch if you would like to pay via bank transfer or cheque. Email: bookings@VictoriaWorksStudios.co.uk
