note change of date

This one-day workshop introduces the printing techniques of drypoint and chine collé. Inspired by the rich and varied flora and fauna at the Garden you will learn how to transfer your hand-drawn originals into unique fine art prints. Drypoint is the simplest and most direct form of intaglio fine art printmaking. 'Intaglio' describes the method whereby an image or design has been etched, engraved or incised into a printing plate. What characterises a drypoint print is the soft velvet quality of its line achieved by directly scratching the surface of a metal or plastic plate with a sharp pointed tool. Chine collé is the technique of attaching fine delicate papers during the process of printing.

This type of printmaking is easy to learn – previous knowledge or experience of printmaking processes and materials is not essential.

The original date for this workshop was 16 October. The date changed to 24 July in January 2014.
10am – 4pm
