The Creative Well: Printmaking Workshop
Thursday 12th May, 2016 - Saturday 14th May, 2016FREE
Free three-day printmaking workshop for adults: 10am to 1pm on 12th – 13th and 14th May
People will all levels of ability are welcomed as the workshop is aimed at beginners and at those who have experience!
Over three days’ artist Emma Finucane will bring participants through the monoprint, and drypoint printmaking process.
Drypoint is one of the simplest forms of Intaglio printing, the artist works directly on to the plate to create scratched surface that can then be printed multiple times. Participants will create their own plate and learn how to print on a small Etching press.
Monoprint is a single impression of an image made from a reprintable plate. Participants will explore monoprint through a combination of techniques e.g. drawing materials and fabric, collage and frottage, combining the spontaneity of printed inks and paper, creating a surface that is unlike any other art.
All materials will be provided.
