Mark Making with Drypoint: Sustainable Printmaking at Home
One of the most emotive forms of intaglio printmaking is drypoint, which allows for direct and uniquely personal mark making. This non-toxic, inexpensive home-based course is designed for those looking to explore this technique, but don’t have access to a studio, press or expensive supplies. We will focus on methods that can be safely and easily performed in the home and will be limited to home-safe materials. This DIY approach will keep outside purchases to a minimum, minimizing cost, and utilizes commonly found household tools and utensils whenever possible. The workshop will be tailored to the interests and skill levels of the participants and will encourage individual expression and experimentation. As this is a workshop, this is non-graded and non-credit. Supply cost is between $50 and $75.
