Course Information

Dry point image


A chance to roll up your sleeves and get hands on with printmaking here at the University of Brighton School of Art and Media. On this one-day course you’ll be introduced to Dry point to generate your own prints. Dry point is a long established printing technique of scratching or drawing into plastic using a pointed tool. This creates a plate which can then be inked so that multiple prints can be made on to paper through the use of a printing press (like a giant mangle!). It’s a very direct and immediate form of printmaking and has been widely used through the ages by a variety of artists including Rembrandt and Picasso.

Course level suitable for beginners.

The tutor for this course is Phil Tyler
