Create drypoint prints from copper and plastic plates with expedient non-toxic processes, no solvents or chemicals. We will begin with an exploration of drypoint techniques, drawing layers of line and texture with drypoint needles directly onto plates.  Moving briskly through these straightforward direct processes students will have the  opportunity to create monoprints and editioned prints using reductive, additive processes.

The technique of Chine Collé will be introduced in the afternoon session. This is a process of simultaneously printing and mounting a thin piece of Asian paper onto a sturdier backing sheet.  This technique can add tone, color and subtle texture to prints.

Workshop participants should come with a few small drawings 6”x8” and 7”x9” ready to transfer to plates.  Using a copy machine to reduce and enlarge images beforehand can be helpful.
