What is Drypoint?
Drypoint is a versatile printmaking process which involves etching an image into a polycarbonate plate ready for printing. Using etching tools you will carve the surface, creating a beautiful and unique textured plate to print multiple editions from. You will then learn how to ink your plate and print it using an etching press. This technique is perfect for getting lovely atmospheric images with the application of ink, helping you loosen up and enjoy all that drypoint has to offer.

What to bring:

• Photographs/drawings of your favourite landscape or piece of nature for inspiration (optional)
• An apron or an old shirt
