The Vintage Craft School

The Vintage Craft School

The Vintage Craft School is a new and exciting collaboration of all things vintage. It aims to foster an ongoing creative community while sharing time-honored art and craft techniques, teaching basic traditional skills and the popular art of up-cycling. The Vintage Craft School not only offers the chance to learn traditional skills from experienced tutors and create beautiful art objects in a heritage setting; it brings back the social, interactive aspect of ‘hand-making’ as a therapeutic pastime.

ART + CRAFT + GIFT: Dry Point Etching with chine-colle

Chine-collé is a special technique in printmaking, in which the image is transferred to a surface that is bonded to a heavier support in the printing process. One purpose is to allow the printmaker to print on a much more delicate surface, such as Japanese paper or linen, which pulls finer details off the plate and provides colourful interaction with the main print.
