Intaglio in Colour – 5 weeks
Weds 3 November – 1 December 2021
This course is a great introduction for those wanting to learn the basic principles of intaglio or those curious to bring colour into their printmaking practice.
We will be working with monotype, drypoint and carborundum on different types of substrates such as TetraPak and PETG to help you create layers and achieve unexpected tonal variations. There will be plenty of experimenting and opportunity to hone your printing skills as you learn how to achieve accurate multiple plate registration. We will be using Photoshop to create 4 colour separations and dipping into colour theory to help you exploit the textures and effects that each technique has to offer.
