This wonderful method of intaglio allows the students to create effects ranging from line through to embossed texture and tonal value.
Unlike metal or plastic drypoint, the paper can also be torn and cut by hand, allowing a greater freedom of expression and direct innovation. The card is exceptionally sensitive to mark making with numerous non-traditional tools such as stones, sticks, pegs, knitting needles and many more.
We will be exploring the full potential of the card over the two days, using a range of teaching techniques to illustrate how it can be exceptionally expressive and bold, and can hugely help those students wishing to break out of a printmaking hole! We will be working in both monochrome and colour.
Suitable for everyone, beginners and those with previous printmaking experience.
Dates: Monday 4 and Tuesday 5 November
Times: 10am to 3pm
Cost: £120 / Members £110
