I've recently been running a course focussing on a printmaking process called 'drypoint'. Over the years a lot of the work I have made and shown here on my blog uses this technique. Drypoint prints are printed from plates that are made by simply being scratched into with a sharp pointy tool, like a needle. I'm showing here a suite of work incorporating some beautiful old family photograph postcards which I came across at Deptford market, South London. I made drypoint plates on polycarbonate and printed them directly onto the old photographs.
