An Introduction to Printmaking with Nick Archer


An Introduction to Printmaking (monoprint and dry point etching) in the print room at Rye Creative Centre on Saturday 25th May.

In partnership with Rye Art Gallery and our exhibition The Art of British Printmaking. Nick will be running a workshop in the print room at Rye Creative Centre – An Introduction to Printmaking (monoprint and dry point etching).

Monoprint is the process of painting onto a smooth printing plate and then printing this onto paper creating ‘one off’ prints. Dry point etching follows the technique of scratching /etching into a plate using a sharp tool and then printing the plate on the press.

Nick will be showing the process of making a print using these techniques and helping you to develop your own visual ideas.

The workshop will be divided into 2 x 3-hour sessions: 10am – 1pm – monoprinting 2pm – 5pm – dry point etching

The groups are small (5 people maximum) and are tailored to all abilities from complete beginners to those with more experience.

Monoprint only £60
Dry point only £60
All day (both) £100
