Drypoint etching & Monoprint Combined
Contact course provider
About the Course
Come and spend some time developing your printmaking skills in a relaxing, supportive environment. Workshops are open to all and being small groups only, are individually tailored to ability. All workshops are run by myself, I've taught art for over 25 years as well as creating my own work, and take place in my studio in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
A day spent learning drypoint etching and monoprint techniques.
Depending on your experience and interests we will focus on the two different techniques that may be kept separate or combined. The final prints you produce will very much depend on your interests so if you have sketches, photos or designs you would like to work from bring them along, if not there are plenty of natural forms to work from around here from feathers and plants to landscapes and animals.
The morning will be spent preparing your drypoint etching plate which you will be shown how to ink and produce a small edition of prints from in the afternoon.
Monoprints will also be made using plants and feathers from the surrounding gardens to make separate prints or combined to add additional layers to some of your existing etchings.
Horton in Ribblesdale is on the Settle-Carlisle line so possible by public transport. The workshop is family friendly and my studio has wheelchair access, although easily accessible the toilet is up a gravel drive. Please state if mobility assistance will be needed.

What's included in the price?
A light lunch (soup, sandwiches and cake) and unlimited tea and coffee and biscuits are provided throughout the day.... creativity needs fuel!
All materials are provided, just bring an apron.
Penny explained everything clearly with demonstrations of all the techniques and provided notes which also included examples of other artists' work.
We had a very enjoyable day, learned lots and all produced a few prints to keep.
I am looking forward to attending another of her workshops.
