Getting into Intaglio

DATE:  7th October 2012
TIME: 10am – 4pm (inc lunch break)

Intaglio collograph is a lovely method which gives results very similar in character to etching, but with much more familiar materials and techniques.  Fran Tristram will take you step by step through the process of drawing the image into the card plate with a knife, sealing with button polish and, once dry, inking and wiping by hand before printing through the press.

Do bring some images with you to work from – we will be printing onto max A4 size paper, so in order to have a good space around the print impression you might want to keep your image size to not much bigger than A5 size.  There is no need to be nervous if you are not confident with drawing – there are many ways in which we can help you.

PRICE: £55 per person per day ~ a discount of £5 is available for any individual booking two days on one weekend A personalised voucher for one of our classes makes a wonderful original gift.
