2nd August – Lino printing.
Dry Point Etching
A one day workshop where you will have the opportunity to make a group of prints using dry point methods and the etching press. You will learn how to create a variety of drawn marks using a dry point tool and working on a Rhenalon plate. The day will also include methods of extending this process using multilayered printing and more expressive mark making. This workshop is suitable for beginners and improvers. You will use artist quality oil based etching inks and printmaking paper.
During this one day workshop you will learn how to design, cut and print your Lino block. There will also be an opportunity to discover how versatile this process can be as you will explore ways to produce multiple colour prints in the afternoon. You will use the Albion Press and artist quality materials.
This day is suitable for both beginners and improvers.
