Introduction to printing.

Last year GreatArt had the pleasure of meeting Printers in the Sticks in the rolling valleys of Wales. A tiny group who had tried printing at a work shop and enjoyed it so much they travel miles to work together in a small studio.

Printmaking is a popular workshop activity for groups and schools. Here we’ve introduced you to the basic types of technique to get you started!

Relief Printing: the oldest and easiest form of printmaking, especially for beginners as it can be performed without a press. Traditionally wood or lino are used for this method, but it is possible to experiment with other materials such as cardboard, polystyrene plates, cork board and even organic items such as potatoes.

Relief wood etching.

The origins of relief etching date back to the end of the 14th century to relief wood engraving. At the time, European artists engraved wooden plates to create images ranging from religious icons to playing cards.

This technique consists of hollowing out of the wooden plate, normally made of walnut, pear, apple or even cherry wood, the intended white parts of the drawn pattern. This was done with the help of gouges or penknives. The image in relief on the wooden plate was “spared” and the ink applied onto the plate would coat the spared parts of the pattern and not the hollowed parts.
