Tuesday Print Club - Drypoint Engraving
|Location||Leicester Print Workshop|
|Date & Time||Tuesday 31st October
- Tuesday 5th December
11am - 1pm.
Print Club is an opportunity to gain confidence and build printmaking skills as part of a small group in a technician led series of sessions.
Focusing on one technique, Drypoint Engraving, over six weeks, the first week will comprise teaching and demonstrations, whilst subsequent weeks take the form of self-directed, guided sessions, encouraging participants to use the time to explore and experiment with the technique.
In drypoint engraving, lines are scratched into a printing plate using a needle to create a burr which holds ink. The plate is then inked up and printed to create an original print with characteristic rich lines.
