Unusual for the time, Hogarth made many of his own prints. Learn more about printing and the processes that went into making the prints you see on display in the House. Each workshop will cover Hogarth as a printmaker, the drypoint technique and a hands-on opportunity to make print your own uniquely designed plate.
Intaglio, meaning ‘to incise,’ encompasses printing techniques such as engravings and etchings, which are how Hogarth made his prints, as well as the more modern technique of drypoint. Intaglio printing techniques are the opposite of relief printing, such as lino or woodcuts, and require considerably more pressure to print. Participants will create their own unique design using specialist tools, watch it run through our intaglio press and at the end take home their completed masterpiece.
No previous printmaking experience needed.
