Ready to experiment further with both drypoint etching and chine collé and take it to the next level? Join us for a 2-day intermediate workshop to dive deeper into the process! Students will spend the first session developing their image, learning to proof the acrylic plate, and then make adjustments. The second session will be spent working up a specific plan with the chine colle’ elements and the acrylic drypoint plate. Using prior knowledge of drypoint (or other intaglio process), inking, adding collage elements, and printing, students will develop prints with intention and meaning and gain competence with the process. The students will also learn to create a registration system, prepare chine colle’ papers prior to inking the plate, and be introduced to two-color printing. Students will complete at least two plates and have six to eight prints made by the end of the second session.
Level: Intermediate – Introduction to Etching, Introduction to Drypoint and Chine Collé, or similar experience (6 hours) is required.
Registration closes November 28, 2023. Material fees are included with your registration to cover the supplies provided in class. Students may/will need to gather/purchase additional materials for class (see the materials list below). This list will also be provided with the registration confirmation email.
