Printmaking is the process of making artworks by printing, normally on paper. Printmaking normally covers the process of creating prints that have an element of originality.

Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. Engineers used the process well into the 20th century as a simple and low-cost process to produce copies of drawings, referred to as blueprints. The process uses two chemicals: ammonium iron(III) citrate and potassium ferricyanide.

Drypoint is a printmaking technique of the intaglio family, in which an image is incised into a plate (or "matrix") with a hard-pointed "needle" of sharp metal or diamond point. Traditionally the plate was copper, but now acetatezinc, orplexiglas are also commonly used. Like etching, drypoint is easier for an artist trained in drawing to master than engraving, as the technique of using the needle is closer to using a pencil than the engraver's burin.

In these sessions we will learn how to produce a hand made matrix, to prepare the sensitive solution and print beautiful blue-prints in cyanotype or ink based prints with the use of a printing press.
The laboratories are suitable for beginners and intermediate students willing to experiment with the technique under supervision of a tutor.
