Intaglio Printmaking

Rachel Cohen
£100

Intaglio printing includes drypoint etching and collagraph printing. We will use the printing press at Phoenix Art Space so these techniques are not easily continued at home. We will experiment with different papers and use black and coloured inks.

The course will begin with a monoprinting session, covering 2 different methods and using the press. During sessions 2 and 3 we will make etchings on plastic and card, scratching our images with a sharp tool (provided). In session 4 we will make a collagraph using mixed media on cardboard and in session 5 print using these collagraphs.

This course covers the second part of the 10 week All Levels Printmaking course but you don’t need to have completed the first part to sign up. Suitable for all levels including beginners, no experience or art training is needed. Returning students or others familiar with the techniques are welcome, and may work on their own projects independently or try more advanced techniques with guidance and advice from the tutor as needed.

Images are by previous course attendees.

Workshop Rooms, Phoenix Art Space

Most materials are provided, but you may want to purchase some extra paper later in the course. Students are invited to bring images and ideas but the tutor will also provide objects and images to inspire you. Please wear old clothes as printing can be messy.

Rachel studied Art History (BA) at Sussex University and Fine Art (PG Dip) at Brighton. She has an MA in museum and gallery education from the Institute of Education, London. She learned printmaking at a private college in Treviso, Italy and at Kensington and Chelsea Institute in London. Rachel works with wide range of techniques and materials. She makes paintings and sculptures, site-specific installations and performances. Recent projects include residencies in Ireland, Spain, Brazil, Portugal and Denmark, solo exhibitions at Regency Town House and Newhaven Fort and group shows in Brighton, London and Eastbourne.
