DRYPOINT – Objet d’Hart’ or Objects of the Heart

Drypoint is the process of scratching lines and marks into a surface with a sharp point which is then inked and printed with damp paper.

In this workshop, Adrienne will show you how to create your image using a transparent acrylic plate, perfect for detailed line recording, which will then be printed with the chapel’s lovely vintage etching press.

This workshop will explore making images of a chosen object. An item that means something to you. It might be a treasured possession, a pair of baby’s shoes, a vegetable or flower you have grown, a favourite mug. Anything that conveys meaning for you.


Adrienne Craddock – I was born and brought up in the beautiful Herefordshire Countryside, a feral child with the riverside to explore. Life’s journey took me to experience the drama of city life in Manchester, where I studied printmaking. Back on home turf, my eyes are reopened to the contrasts and uniqueness of this rural borderland. I now make prints that explore and celebrate my local landscape – awash with colour – to capture its evolving energy and forms.
