About The Event
This workshop, led by Sarah Nkugwa from Pop Print Studio, will introduce students to the technique of drypoint etching and chine collé. You will learn how to transfer your simple line drawings into unique fine art prints. Drypoint is the simplest and most direct form of intaglio fine art printmaking. It lends itself to drawing and markmaking. Chine Collé describes the technique of adding colour and texture, with lightweight papers. At the start of the workshop, you will learn how to prepare and select suitable artwork and then how to transfer them to drypoint plates. Sarah will show examples of finished prints and demonstrate how to safely use the drypoint tools. After lunch, participants will learn how to ink up and print their prepared drypoint plates, using specialist etching inks and a small etching press. All materials and lunch included.
