This event will introduce people to mixing various methods of drawing & mark making, and then using machine cutting to create traditional printmaking plates and other processes related to laser cut production. Using drawing tools to create marks on paper or with an iPad (or a phone), this will include using physical items such as pencils, pens, ink, crayons and combining them with the digital tools in Procreate on the iPad. These will then be transferred into a suitable file for the laser cutting production. You will then create relief/intaglio plates to be used in the print areas for print production.
