  • How to design and transfer an image.

  • Different mark making techniques to use on your chosen design, using a variety of tools.

  • Print using oil or water based inks and understanding registration techniques.

  • Learn how to push your print further with Chine-collé technique.

  • Print through our press ‘Olive’

 

The course has been designed to support all levels of experience, whether you are a beginner or already have some experience within printmaking, this course can teach you the foundations of printmaking whilst allowing you to learn more advanced techniques within lino and drypoint. 

This class is kept small with a maximum of 6 pupils. 

 

What experience do I need? 

You can be a complete beginner or already have experience. Our tutor will take you step by step on the two processes, they can add an advanced level within the technique. 

 

What is Lino and Drypoint?

 

Drypoint printmaking

  • Drypoint involves scratching an image into a thin plastic or metal sheet using a range of metal tools. 

  • The lines that are made are then filled with ink and transferred onto paper. 

 

Lino printmaking

  • Lino is what we in the business call 'relief' printing and works in the opposite way to drypoint. 

  • You will work by cutting away everything but the image, then ink the outlying surface, and print onto paper.

 

What will I go home with? 

Over the course you will go home with many variations of prints, some days you may spend more time on the plate itself however the next session you can print from 5 - 10 prints on the size of A5-A4 sizes of paper. 

 

Do I have to bring any materials? 

We provide all materials including tools, inks, rollers, plates, plastic and paper. Please bring an apron.
