Printmaking workshops and courses use non acid techniques.

Non acid techniques. 

Monoprint or Monotype. Artwork is directly produced onto metal or perspex using ink. Damp paper is laid over the image and passed through the press. This produces free flowing designs.

Drypoint. The drawing is scratched into the surface of the plate. A steel needle or diamond point is used. The delicate greys are characteristic of this method.

Collagraph. Above all one of the advantages of the collagraph is creating a plate. This may be cardboard or metal. To create a variety of textures glue fabric, paper, sand and sugar to the surface. Plates can also be cut and layers removed.

Lino. First of all a drawing is made onto the linoSections of the lino are cut out. A first colour is printed then these sections are removed therefore allowing multiple colours to be added.
