Please arrive at 6:15pm for a 6:30 start.

In this fun and informal workshop you will have the chance to learn an exciting, traditional printmaking technique and produce several colourful prints. 

Drypoint, like etching and engraving, belongs to the Intaglio family of printmaking, but is much more simple and direct than its relatives. In drypoint the surface of the plate is scratched, gouged, punctured, scraped or abraded, but the material itself is not removed, it is just pushed to the side, forming a burr. It is this 'burr' which holds the ink, and gives a drypoint line, or area, its typical velvety appearance. You will learn how to create lively marks using drypoint needles, drawing directly onto the surface of a plate. 

You'll be introduced to varying ways of adding colour and tonal ranges to you images, including inking techniques, and Chine-colle. All materials and inks provided. 

Feel free to bring along some sketches or images to use as reference material. 

Event held at Alex Does Coffee location, where there will be a full selection of coffee/tea and cakes available.
