Fun Shaped Dry Point Plates
with Brooke Inman
As an adaptation to traditional intaglio printmaking, that can be very labor intensive and expensive, this 3-hour workshop will introduce the creation and printing of hand-cut Aluminum Flashing Dry-Point Plates. The image to be printed is scratched into the surface of a thin aluminum flashing plate and is cut out and shaped by hand, and then is linked up to be printed under great pressure using an intaglio press. All materials will be provided.
