Dry point Workshop

If you are a school, company or planning a party, click on the relevant word for more details.

Class description

This fun & friendly workshop will guide you through the steps to produce a drypoint print on high quality printing paper and get to use the specialist print press!

Perfect for people who have little or no previous screen printing experience because you will be guided through the process from start to finish.

It’s quite a physical printing process so be prepared to add some elbow grease to your ink! It’s a really fun class, in a relaxed atmosphere and be prepared to get messy - wearing old clothes is a good idea!

We aim for each participant to leave with 3 A4 prints on high quality printmaking paper (very professional!) Keep one for yourself and give the others as gifts … if you can bear to part with them!
