Courses I'll Be Teaching Soon

  • Drypoint with Chine Collè

    Saturday 27th April, 10am - 4pm.

    Drypoint is a direct way of working on metal or Perspex plate which is printed “intaglio” – like an etching. The process lends itself to lively, expressive mark making, using needles, roulettes, sandpapers and power tools. Chine Collè is an interesting way to add colour.

  • Create Your Own Chine Collé

    Thursday 23rd May, 10am - 4pm .

    One day masterclass for practising printmakers. Chine Collé is a great way to add colour with the addition of fine coloured papers without making another block.

This workshop explores ways of adding colours, textures and imagery to fine paper to use in your own practice. With Lynn Bailey.
