Etching, Relief & Monoprinting

DRYPOINT PRINTING

$45

with Brooke Inman

Calendar May 23, 2018 at 6 pm

As an adaptation to traditional intaglio printmaking, which can be very labor intensive and expensive, this workshop will introduce the creation and printing of hand-cut aluminum flashing dry-point plates. The image to be printed is scratched into the aluminum and cut out and shaped by hand. Then it’s inked up to be printed under great pressure on an existing etching plate or a blank matrix using an intaglio press. Come with imagery you hope to work with!
