Join printmaker Janine Denby and for this multi process printmaking workshop combining monoprint with drypoint.

During the morning session I will introduce you to the technique of drypoint, an intaglio process in which a sharp stylus or needle is used to scratch lines directly into a rhenalon or metal plate and a print is taken from the inked up lines using an etching press.

Working from sketches or given images, you will be shown how to use drypoint tools in different ways to make line, pattern and tone to create your printing plate. You will learn how to ink, wipe and print your plate and try out different methods to create 2-3 variations of the same print.

During the afternoon session I will introduce you to monoprint, an expressive technique in which a plate is covered with a layer of ink and the image is formed by manipulating and removing the ink using a variety of tools, including brushes, rags, or the artist’s fingers. You will be able to explore combining your drypoint with monoprint techniques to add layers of colour, textures or patterns to your prints.

At the end of this session you will take away a small edition of drypoint and monoprint prints that can be framed, worked into further with mixed media or turned into bookmarks, book covers, labels, broaches, coasters or collage. In other words, the possibilities are endless!

This course is suitable for beginners, experienced artists who want to extend their skills in printmaking, printmakers who would like to refresh their knowledge of drypoint and monoprint techniques or teachers who want to incorporate drypoint and monoprint techniques into their schemes of work.
