Masterclass: Mezzotint with Stuart Brocklehurst

Masterclass: Mezzotint with Stuart Brocklehurst

Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st August 2022

Your tutor: Stuart Brocklehurst

Masterclasses are back! Why not join printmaker Stuart Brocklehurst on our first ever mezzotint workshop here at WYPW and explore this beautiful intaglio process?

An engraving technique made popular in the eighteenth century as a means for reproducing portrait paintings; mezzotint–from the Italian mezzo (“half”) and tinta (“tone”)–works by holding halftones in subtle gradations of light and shade, rather than lines to form the image. Creating prints with soft gradations of tone and rich velvety blacks, attendees of this two day workshop will work on pre-rocked (by hand rather than mass produced) copper plate, to design, engrave and print a small mezzotint image.
