Drawing into Print: Intaglio Print Workshop
Feb 16 @ 10:30 am – 4:30 pm
Drawing into Print: Intaglio Print Workshop  @ The Holburne Museum | England | United Kingdom

Join printmaker, Jemma Gunning, for a lively day of sketching and printing. Spend the morning making site-specific drawings around Bath, using various drawing techniques to capture the beautiful architecture the city has to offer. In the afternoon, you will work your drawings up into a small edition of intaglio prints to take home with you, creating a lively set of dry points with an etching press and exploring inking techniques, colour and tonal ranges, and Chine-colle.

Printmaker, Jemma Gunning, specialises in etching and stone lithography. Her artistic practice researches industrial decline and abandoned spaces that have been left to fall into disrepair. She is interested in recording our heritage before it is obliterated from our landscapes. Her work asks us to slow down and to consider the buildings that too many of us just walk straight past and ignore.
