Join artist printmaker Georgie Fay for an afternoon of experimenting with drypoint, an illustrative intaglio technique in the Hugo Burge Foundation Glasshouses with a portable printmaking press. Georgie will lead demonstrations in the drypoint technique using various surfaces to scratch into, then how to ink these up and print them on the printmaking press.

Please wear clothes that you don't mind getting messy and a sketchbook and images of ideas and inspiration. All materials and inks will be provided!

This course is suitable for all levels and abilities. It is perfect for artists in need of inspiration, creative explorers and curious beginners who want to try something new!

About the Facilitator: Georgie Fay is an artist and creative facilitator. She runs participatory workshops and activities responding to her practice with various participants, young and old. Fay is currently interested in developing projects in which nature, science and art collide. She is keen to use nature and the way in which humans process the natural world, attempting to make sense of it through scientific and artistic means as a starting point to create a series of heavily processed prints and etchings.

Participation, sharing and socially engaged practice
