OTHER CLASSES


Dates on request and dependant on numbers.


DRYPOINT – an Introduction to printing with metal plates with Rachel Wilcox

With a drypoint, the image is scratched into the printing plate, traditionally copper or zinc although Perspex can be used, using steel points. The plate is then inked-up ensuring that ink goes into all the scratches, then the ink is carefully rubbed off leaving just the inked lines. The plate and paper are then run through the press and the impression made.
