Exploring Multi-Colour Printing with Drypoint with Artist/Illustrator Mai Osawa – Sunday 19 February

19th February 2023 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM GMT


Although printing Drypoint plates with a dense black ink gives very satisfying results (producing a rich velvety black), completely different impressions can be achieved with the same plate using a range of colour printing processes. These include the Chine-collé technique with the use of thin papers, inking up a plate À la poupée where the multiple inks are carefully applied using ‘a dolly’, and multi-plate printing with more than one plate, for which you need a clear understanding of registration.

All will be demonstrated and explained by Mai on the day!

This one-day workshop is suitable for beginners and refreshers alike.

Date: Sunday 19 February
Time: 10am to 4pm
Cost: £80 / Members £75

Mai Osawa is a professional Japanese artist, illustrator and printmaker based in the UK:

“I have long been fascinated by the old stone buildings of Europe and I am curious to understand what it must have been like as a mason or an architect in olden times. I like to think that the physical process of etching presents the printmaker with a similar challenge to that of a mason striving to achieve a perfect building or carving. This is why I enjoy focusing on intaglio/etching processes. The most important aspects for me are ‘light’ and ‘dimension’ and my aim is to create scenes that can tell a different story for each individual viewer.”
