In this two-day workshop, participants will learn the basic techniques to intaglio printmaking that will allow you to print from home using minimal supplies and equipment. Participants will create their own ‘dry-point’ etching on repurposed plastic sheets and will learn how to print without using a traditional press. This particular printing technique goes back centuries. Using ink and pressure, an image is transferred to a damp piece of paper, which is then left to dry overnight under newsprint and a weighted object. The workshop requires some basic background in art-making (drawing and mark-making). All levels are welcome. For ages 13 and up.
Prior to the workshop, participants will receive a list of supplies required. A limited number of scholarships are available for art kits.
Dial-in instructions will be emailed to attendees the week of the event.
