Event description

Description

In this workshop we will make a small, simple drypoint* plate, then ink and print it, aiming to create up to ten prints onto pre-cut cards that can be either signed then framed as fine art, or used as Christmas cards.

*Drypoint is the simplest form of printmaking, where an image is scratched into a flat surface, originally copper. Ink is forced into the scratches by hand, wiped off, then printed on an etching press. Examples of Christine's drypoint printing can be found at www.christineporter.com.au/magpie/
