Printmaking

Our printmaking workshops include many different print disciplines. Lino cutting uses special tools to ‘gouge’ a design. Collograph uses found objects such as computer parts or textiles to create interesting textures. Drypoint uses needles to etch a design into acrylic sheets. The way these are printed varies. It is sometimes messy but always fun. We have used printmaking to create lots of amazing artworks including a huge clock for the studio, greetings cards to sell in our shop and many pieces for festivals and exhibitions. We print onto many surfaces including hand made paper, slate, wood and foam. Printmaking is great for all abilities with interesting results being achieved from both complex, literal and abstract designs.
