Printmaking   –   an experimental one day course.

An experimental one day course teaches you the basics of Collagraph, mono-printing and dry-point so you can then combine them all to get exciting results.

Collagraph plates are textured, rich and beautiful when inked up. We will look at the basics of making a plate, you can bring a plate with you or use the ones we have.

Mono-prints are one off prints and we will be looking at a number of ways to generate them.

Drypoint plates are primarily line drawings, can be made quickly and easily.

Participants will be shown the different methods of printing and then be encouraged to print them in different combinations to get exciting results. Suitable for complete beginners to more experienced printmakers who want to experiment with multi layered prints.

Participants should leave the course with a number of finished prints and the skills to carry on.
