This set of 3 classes is an introduction to several non-chemical printmaking techniques. They can be taken as a short course or as separate classes. Once these skills have been learnt they open up endless possibilities to create beautiful prints individually or by combining two or more of the different print processes on one piece. You don’t need to have excellent drawing skills for any of these methods as all can be combined with image transfers or tracings. Please bring an apron and basic pencil case tools. All other materials will be provided. Maximum 6 people per class. Teas provided. Delicious lunches and cakes are available to purchase from the Stiwdio 3 café should you wish.
Sunday October 27th – Collagraph 1 – 4pm
Collagraph printing is an intaglio technique originally using cardboard, glue, collaged elements, and varnish to create the plate, and therefore several days to complete. In this class you will learn a simplified version of the method using drypoint paper or tetrapak, tapes and foils to create your collaged plates that can be printed on the same day.
Sunday November 24th – Drypoint 1 – 4pm
Drypoint is a lovely intaglio print method closely related to etching. We will be working with an etching needle on a Perspex plate and using high quality inks to print.
