Intro to: Chine Colle with Drypoint - a one day Workshop
Saturday 27th November 2021.   Times: 10 – 5pm

Fully Booked!


This course will be an introduction to Drypoint and Chine Collé. Over the course of the day, you will gain working knowledge of both techniques as well as some contextual knowledge of their application. You will be encouraged to use techniques learned to experiment and produce your own unique image(s).

Learn how to create an intaglio drypoint etching(s); a process where by you scratch with a needle point(s) directly into the surface of a plate(s) which is then inked and printed. This will then be combined with chine collé, (a method that allows you to ‘collage’ onto your printed drawing with patterns and shapes of transparent colour using layers of tissue).

Throughout the day you will be shown how to experiment, develop ideas and composition to create a range of original drypoint and chine collé prints using different qualities of line, tone and shape giving you a solid foundation from which you can take forward to extend and or explore other intaglio processes in the future. This workshop will give you the opportunity to be experimental, creative and will enable you to develop your own ideas and understanding in a friendly, safe and positive learning environment!
