Spend a day learning all about the art of print making working with dry point and collagraph printing techniques.
What will you learn on this course?
In this one-day course young people will learn how to create successful dry point and collagraph prints. The course combines drawing skills with creative printmaking techniques.
Dry point is an intaglio process, where a drawing is scratched into a printing surface with a pointed tool, the print then reveals the beauty of the drawing. In contrast, collagraph printing is a relief printing process, where you attach materials such as carboard, plant materials or even found objects on to a surface which is then printed on to paper using a printing press.
The course tutor will explain and demonstrate the techniques and assists individuals with the development of their ideas, and help them create their final pieces of beautiful printed art work.
By the end of the course each person will have a series of drawings, intaglio and collagraph prints to take home.
