Last Friday I had a great day teaching a drypoint and mono printing workshop. It was held at Shelley College, Huddersfield, and involved students aged 12-14 years from the College and local schools. We experimented with mono printing in the morning, trying different ways of drawing Christmas trees including continuous line and drawing without looking at the paper.
We then designed a dry point print by scratching into plastic sheets with drypoint needles. In the afternoon we printed our dry point trees and birds, finally gluing them on to card to make Christmas cards. Et Voila!
It was a great day with lovely pupils!
