Printmaking is an artistic technique that involves transferring images onto another surface, typically paper or fabric.
Printmaking is an art form that isn’t actually produced by directly drawing on paper, but instead relies on a transfer method. The artist initiates the process by crafting a composition on an alternative surface, like metal or wood. The transfer transpires when this surface is inked, and a sheet of paper – pressed into contact with it – is then fed through a printing press. Four prevalent printmaking methods include woodcut, etching, lithography, and screenprinting.
