This technique in printmaking is so new…. it doesn’t have a technique name yet. Working in Digital printmaking, Belfast Print Workshop printmaker Josephine McCormick invites you to make a print using sound vibration. Using a frequency generator to produce a sound which is then captured as a cymatic pattern onto card, you will then make a collagraph and print up using good quality printing inks and paper. You choose your own frequency to capture and colour to print it up with. Enjoy the experience and experiment with sound and printmaking and take home your very own cymatic print
