Using the drypoint technique, students on this workshop will make expressive prints from the model.
This form of printmaking uses a direct approach to mark making, which will be developed throughout the day. Auerbach’s direct drawings on etching plates will provide the key inspiration for the session. An introduction will be given to demonstrate the use of a range of tools to draw directly on the etching plate and achieve a variety of expressive marks. Students will leave the workshop with a selection of drypoint prints.
