Course Details
Learn how to create prints from your drawings with drypoint during this one day course.

 

What will you learn?

Drypoint is a printmaking technique that creates a line-based image by using sharp tools to scratch into the surface of a copper plate. The style of this method lends itself well to loose drawing and expressive, fluid mark making.

Often confused with the process of etching, Drypoint is in itself an individual, standalone technique. It consists of drawing, or ‘engraving’, fairly deepl y into the copper plate using specialist tools in order to create an image. Unlike etching there is no use of resists or mordants to bite the metal plate, making drypoint a fairly simple way to create a plate for printing multiple prints.

Students will learn how to create prints from drawings during this course.
