Cost: £45. Acrylic printing plates, paper and inks included.

Location: at SLAUGHTERHAUS

A fast, fun introduction to drypoint with tutor Chris Christodoulou. Working outside in the yard (weather permitting!) you will draw directly onto plastic drypoint plates. Chris will show you how to achieve a range rich blacks and tones using drypoint techniques. You will explore markmaking with cross hatching and building marks and tone with a range of tools. You will learn how to ink and print the plate to achieve the dark and smudgy lines characteristic of drypoint, and which Chris uses to such good effect in his own work.
