Acid Free Print workshop Sat 9th & Sun 10th June

A two-day workshop where students will get to experiment with a wide range of intaglio techniques, including Monoprinting, Chine cole, Drypoint and mixed media. Taking place on Saturday 9th and Sunday the 10th of June from 10.30 until 4.30 pm.

This acid-free workshop starts with an introduction to materials, equipment, and tools and then moves onto the portfolio, where participants can see examples of prints. Then, there will be a brief demonstration of the process, before participants start to create their own prints using monoprint at first and then moving onto drypoint later in the workshop.  No experience necessary, participants will be able to trace over their images without any difficulties as photocopies can be used. Once the plates are done we can print them using a range of colours and papers.
