Have a go at Drypoint Etching

Drypoint involves cutting a design into the surface of a clear perspex plate with an etching needle.

  • 60 British pounds
  • Tower Street

Service Description

In our half day Drypoint workshop you will learn how to use our tools with confidence and how to ink up a plate and prepare your paper for printing. You will also have time to practice and experiment with textures to get different effects in your prints and will design and print an etching of your own to take home. For those with previous experience, we can help you refresh your skills in this session and you are welcome to spend the time working on your own project.
