DrypointIntaglio for the Book Minded!
Drypoint is the most immediate of the Intaglio techniques, one that is well-suited for book imagery. It is a simple non-toxic process of drawing directly on a plate, using a scribe to create a burr that prints as a soft velvety line. The students will work on small copper plates. Because both sides of the copper plate can be used, each student should be able to work out a loose narrative of thought, the way one does through sketching. The proper way to ink a plate and edition a print will be demonstrated. A printing guide will be provided for students who want to turn their prints into the signatures of a book.
Deadline to register: One week before the class starts.
