A one day printmaking workshop presenting the opportunity to create prints using Drypoint and Chine Collé techniques.
Drypoint is the simplest and most direct process of the intaglio techniques. A hard steel needle is used to incise lines in a metal plate. The lines in a drypoint print are characterised by a soft fuzziness caused by ink printed from a burr, a rough ridge of metal thrown up on each side of the furrow of the drypoint line.
Chine collé (Chinese collage) is a method used in combination with a printmaking technique to introduce colour and texture into a print without having to prepare and print additional plates. Papers are cut or torn into desired shapes, any number of lightweight papers can be successfully used for chine collé but traditionally Japanese papers are used. The ink from the plate prints on top of the chine collé papers, creating some interesting and unusual effects with lines, tones and textures.
Workshops are for adults aged 18 years and over.
