Workshop Overview

The first morning of the workshop we will explore drawing ideas and collaborative processes to give participants the opportunity to explore unfamiliar approaches and combinations of materials. We will focus on the use of line, mark making, contrast and value structure. For the remainder of the workshop we will learn and practice drypoint intaglio techniques using copper and plastic plates with non-toxic water-soluble inks. Chine Collé techniques with Asian papers will be introduced and implemented in combination with drypoint. Participants will be encouraged to experiment with these new techniques. The workshop is accessible to a variety of skillsets: Beginner and advanced techniques will be offered and choices of printing monoprints or editioned prints will be discussed.

All levels of student ability and experience will find this workshop challenging. Within every section of the workshop advanced students will be given more challenging options to pursue. Children must be accompanied by a participating adult.
