Drypoint printmaking workshop with Julia Timmins

June 1 @ 10:00

Drypoint printmaking workshop with Julia Timmins

Julia Timmins is an accomplished artist and printmaker with work held in public and private collections both in the UK and abroad. Working from her Shropshire studio she produces intricate prints which are often inspired by the surrounding countryside.
Drypoint printmaking is an intaglio print method where marks are incised onto the plate rather than etched with chemicals. Rich lines with velvety textures can be achieved with a scribe and areas of tone produced by texturing the plate. 

This course is suitable for beginners or those wanting to build on their skills. You will learn how to prepare a plate for drypoint printing, practise mark making to create texture and tone, then apply those marks to your own design. You will work on an A5 plate, learn about soaking paper, inking your plate and print a small edition of prints on an etching press.

Cost £70 (Includes a practice plate and an A5 plate for your print, paper for printing a small edition of prints and a selection of tools available to use for the workshop plus your own scribe to keep)
To allow for more time to learn about drypoint printmaking you will need to prepare an A5 image to work with.
