Drypoint printing: Bedminster

Come along to a relaxed workshop where you can master some new skills. Learn how to print using a method called drypoint and get to grips with a printing press in this experience run at Creative Space on North Street in Bedminster.

In this workshop you will:

  • Discover the basics of drypoint printing
  • Use etching skills and a printing press
  • Explore your creativity with a little professional help
  • Take home your completed artwork with a smile

This experience is ideal for:

Beginners - it's a great workshop to introduce you to the world of drypoint! Intermediates- come along to try adding a collage layer, called chine colle, to the printing process & of course return to use the printing press for more of your own creations!

In drypoint printmaking, a design is drawn or scratched on a plate with a sharp needle-like instrument, inked up and run through a printing press- making each print truly one-of-a-kind. All materials, in addition to tea and coffee, will be provided for your evening of crafting to be complete.

Treat yourself to some relaxing me-time and leave feeling revived. Just take it from these previous guests:

'I loved this workshop- full of inspiration' 'Thank you for your great workshop! It was fun and relaxing at the end of a long day - amazing!' 'I left feeling upbeat and happy and like I wanted to do more art!'
