Introduction to Drypoint day course photographs

Introduction to Drypoint day course

A successful and really productive day in the studio running our first introduction to Drypoint course.

Each student produced at least four drypoint plates using  a mixture of drypoint plastic and drypoint card. The students executed  initial exploratory mark making on the different materials using a variety of tools. These included carbide and steel tipped stylus’s, roulette wheels, halftone rakes ,sandpaper and wire wool. Learning from these tests the students went one to successfully produce prints using both drypoint plate media. Their resulting designs reflecting their own individual visual style.

The closeness of the basic drypoint technique to drawing together with the variety of additional mark making techniques resulted in a clutch of very strong images. Expectations as to what could be achieved in just 6 hours were exceeded.

Many thanks to our students for making it a great day! To join us on an upcoming course see available dates.
