In this weekend workshop you will learn to work directly on the plate using a dry point needle. The line drawn by a dry point needle creates a burr. This gives the print its rich image. Using line and tone initially and adding to the image by using colour and carborundum which give additional creative effects, each day you will create original prints using professional printing paper and will take home a small edition of your handmade prints.
Come prepared with your ideas, sketches and photographs to explore this printing process. Every print pulled from the press is an original image created by the artist.
