Drypoint Etching without a Press with Karen Carter


Friday 12th October, 10am – 4pm

Have a go at low-tech drypoint etching… printing without a press or chemicals!

From your initial drawings we will scratch the images into acetate and perspex to create permanent plates – these will be inked up in a variety of ways using water-soluble sticks and inks then a print taken from them by hand. 

This is a process you can easily replicate at home with a minimum of specialist equipment. 

No experience needed – lots of step-by-step demos. A fun creative day suitable for complete beginners and those wanting to refresh their skills.
