Experimental Drypoint Printmaking with Jemma Gunning
Drypoint belongs to the intaglio family where the surface of the plate is scratched but the material itself is not removed, it is just pushed to the side forming a burr. It is this 'burr' which holds the ink, and gives a drypoint line, or area, its typical velvety appearance. In this workshop we will explore the various tools that can be used to produce lively energetic marks. Using a portable etching press to print your plates, you will leave with an edition of unique prints.
