Workshop Overview

We will start our creative journey with some fun collaborative drawing exercises. For the remaining time workshop participants will complete a series of original drypoint prints working into copper and plastic plates using their drawing ideas as source material. Chine Colle techniques with Japanese papers will be introduced and implemented with drypoint techniques. Participants will be encouraged to be experimental as they learn to create and print consistent editions and monoprints with a high level of craftsmanship. The goal is to complete a series of images while learning beginning, intermediate, or advanced techniques using both copper and plastic plates, along with non-toxic water-soluble inks.
