DRYPOINT ETCHING   Saturday 24th February 10.30 - 4.00
Cowshed Studio, Goldhill Organic Farm, Child Okeford. Dorset, DT11 8HB


The process is like using a pen without the ink – literally, drawing with a dry point – to create an impression of a drawing which, when inked, can be printed from again and again.

You will experiment with making different marks using etching needles, biros, pencils and sand paper, scratching into card and on plates of perspex. These will then be inked up and rolled through the etching press to create your own unique set of prints.

Maximum of 4 in the class so there will be plenty of individual tuition. It is suitable for all levels of ability.

My studio is on an organic vegetable farm in Child Okeford looking up to the magnificent Hambledon Hill, a prehistoric hill fort. There will be time to wander round the farm, have a browse in the farm shop and even have lunch in the cafe on site if you wish.

£75 including all materials.
