I am running Intaglio Printmaking Summer School in August which will take drypoint as its starting point and move into the Etching Room as the week progresses, providing a comprehensive understanding of the possibilities of these printmaking processes.
All courses are held at Ochre Print Studio and suitable for beginners but also for anyone who wishes to explore etching in a creative and relaxing environment.
At Ochre Print Studio, we aim to use the safest current practices and have promoted processes and materials that are less-toxic. For example we use soy sauce and whiting to degrease the plates, BIG grounds, a water-based paint stripper to remove the ground and a low-toxic aquatint solution.
Non-toxic materials and test prints
We have limited spaces so book early to avoid disappointment!

Drypoint is a beautiful intaglio printmaking technique without the use of acids and a good introduction to traditional printmaking. It lends itself to expressive drawings and fluid mark making. With the use of clear acrylic plates your designs and artwork are easily transferred to the plate and, when inked and wiped carefully, produce beautiful and unique velvety original prints.
My four week course will provide a comprehensive understanding of the possibilities of this technique which includes à la poupée, Chine-collé and Goetz with carborundum.
All materials are included in the workshop price.
