Drypoint and chine-collé 2 week workshop
Tuesday 8 & 15 December
9:30am – 12:30pm
Drypoint belongs to the intaglio family whereby a burr is created that will hold ink. This is a wonderful, direct process whereby the creation of contrasting lines can be achieved. This two-week workshop will focus on the exploration of mark making using a range of drawing tools from drypoint needles to sandpaper. Chine-colle is a technique that allows colour to be added to your print without having to create another substrate. You will be exploring the use of coloured tissue and having the chance to hand paint your own to add unique layers of tone, colour and marks within your work.
At the end of the workshop you would have produced at least two plates, printed in monochrome, explored colour and learnt how to register multi-plates.
Jemma’s practice explores abandoned buildings that contain historic and social significance that are in danger of being lost. She records these transient forms using intaglio and lithographic print methodologies, reflecting the subjects she documents. Alongside her practice Jemma teaches lithography at the University of the West of England and is co-director of Bristol Print Atelier.
