Drypoint: Feel the Burr

December 3 @ 10:00 am - December 4 @ 5:00 pm

$315.00

Saturday-Sunday, December 3-4, 10 AM – 5 PM

with Carol Wax

Drypoint, a method for incising lines directly on copper plates without the use of acid, encompasses a wide range of additive and deductive intaglio techniques that make it one of the most spontaneous and versatile printmaking mediums.

In this workshop, participants learn how to use scribes, roulettes, stipplers, gravers, flexible shaft drill bits, and other metal-smithing tools to draw richly textured linear and nuanced tonal images. Use of drypoint and carborundum for creating grounds that may be worked in the mezzotint manner are also covered. Individual attention gives beginners a solid introduction, helps experienced printmakers expand their approach to the medium, and allows all participants to work at their own pace.

Printing instruction emphasizes wiping techniques for controlling plate tone to take fullest advantage of the drypoint burr. Color printing concerns are addressed as time allows. Artists are encouraged to bring sketches, prints, old etching plates, a sense of discovery, and their imagination.

Limited to 8 participants
