A show of Original Prints from Adult Printmaking Classes at Hampstead School of Art & Print NW6 Studio, curated by printmaking tutor Theresa Pateman.

The definition of an Original Print, as opposed to Giclée or Inkjet Print, is that the artist/printmaker would have some part in hand-making the final image, working from a surface or matrix of metal, wood, plastic, or card. Once ink is rubbed or rolled in/onto this matrix, the image can be transferred and reproduced onto any other surface – in this case paper.


“Scratching and Etching” are processes used to create Intaglio Prints. All original prints, unlike Giclée Prints, require much more intervention and heartache grappling with these methods from start to finish.There are professionals and beginners alike within this collective, many of them are local to the area.


As a group they have shown at HSA, University Women’s Club, Millfield Art Centre, Burgh House & Kingsgate Workshops Gallery.

Techniques used in this show include: Drypoint, Etching, Mezzotints, Monoprints, Photo-etching and Relief Printing.
