Blind embossing (raised) and debossing (indented) uses no ink and is used to highlight a specific area/space/surface producing a clean and distinctive subtle image on paper. You will produce a unique collection of well-defined permanent relief patterns using natural materials, man-made objects and laser cutter cut-outs ‘printed’ onto damp or dry paper leaving delicate and detailed imprints. You will discover how to soak and use a range of papers, you will learn how to use our laser cutter facility to create a variety of shapes or letters and you will use our large etching press to produce your ‘prints’.
Who is the course for?
Suitable for complete beginners or those who wish to learn a new creative technique. This course is for anyone interested in making a mark in a unique and intriguing way.
Do I need to bring anything?

If you would like to bring in a range of organic items i.e. rice, wool, leaves etc., man- made items i.e. rubber bands, lace, ribbon, strings etc. please bring them too.
