Transparency for mixing with relief inks
Range of different sized rollers
Plastic drypoint plates @ 38 x 25cm or thereabouts for each student.
Sharp scribes for incising the drypoint plates
Collage materials. Second hand books, and old prints that can be torn or cut into pieces. Would be best if students bring their own old prints to recycle
Pencils, graphite and coloured
Range of brushes
Large plastic/acrylic sheets to roll relief ink out on that can be put through the press
Cartridge paper for making stencils
The workshop will focus on drypoint intaglio on acetate plates, that can be cut into shapes, and stenciling with relief rolled colour using shaped substrates, found and made. Students can work over existing imagery on cotton paper and/or create new work considering varying scale, overlays and negative and positive space. Experimentation and play is encouraged.
The images are from my workshop at the Newcastle Print Workshop in 2020
