One of the most emotive forms of intaglio printmaking is drypoint etching, which allows for direct and uniquely personal markmaking. This home-based course is designed for those looking to explore this technique but don’t have access to a studio, press or expensive materials. We will focus on methods that can be safely and easily performed in the home and will be limited to non-toxic, water-based materials. This DIY approach will keep outside purchases to a minimum, keeping costs low, and utilize commonly found household tools whenever possible. The workshop will be tailored to the interests and skill levels of the participants and will encourage individual expression and experimentation.
