Creating original prints using traditional methods is a skill that dates back for centuries. It’s a true art form, requiring skill and patience due to its intensive and very ‘hands on’ nature.
The artist begins by creating an original image that they carve into a block of wood or etch onto a copper plate, depending on their chosen print making process. They then ink it up and make each print individually.
Styles may change and new technologies are developed, but at its core printmaking – especially using the methods we offer at the Studio – involves the artist at every part of the process.
