Summer School: Multi-Plate Intaglio Printmaking – August

3 day course
Friday 10th / Saturday 11th / Sunday 12th August 2018
11 – 5


Take a line for a walk exploring multi-plate intaglio printmaking! Join artist, printmaker and 2014 Flourish printmaking award winner Michelle Keegan for an exciting 3 day summer school which will focus on exploring multi-plate printing using collagraph and drypoint technique – no etching required!

Experiment with Drypoint to make marks on aluminium plates – building up surfaces without the requirement of etching chemicals. You will use traditional scrapers and drypoint needles along with sanding and more innovative mark making approaches. Learn how to ink plates ‘a la poupée’ – a mutli-colour inking technique, and explore using transparent inks to achieve layering of colour and images. You can also experiment with the arrangement of the plates to make different compositions.

Use collagraph to build up layers of tone and line on a mount board surface, and work with a number of plates to explore mark marking and shape with this highly versatile process. You will also learn ‘chine collé’ techniques and composition and registration tricks.
