Lisa Feyen: Artist Workshop – Drypoint Etching for Beginners
Saturday 28 November, 10:30 am – 3:30 pm

  • $30.00 per person – bookings essential
  • Suitable for ages 14+

Learn the technique of dry point etching in this relaxed one-day workshop with EAST 2020 exhibiting artist, Lisa Feyen. You will create your own hand-crafted fine art prints inspired by your favourite place; whether it’s your local beach, art deco architecture, or leaves from a corner of your garden. Perfect for complete print beginners or artists looking to broaden their practice and develop image ideas into print context.

What is Dry Point?
Dry point is a versatile printmaking process which involves etching an image into a polycarbonate plate ready for printing. Using etching tools you will carve the surface with your design, creating a beautiful and unique textured plate to print multiple editions from. You will then learn how to choose inks, ink your plate and print it using an etching press.

This printmaking process can be added to with watercolour paint, to give your prints a colourful touch.

Bookings essential, please email or phone (06) 871 5095 for more information/to secure your place.
