Line to Tone: Hone Your Drypoint Skills

June 22 @ 10:00 am - June 23 @ 5:00 pm


Saturday-Sunday, June 22-23, 10 AM-5 PM

with Carol Wax

Drypoint is one of the most versatile and direct intaglio printmaking methods. Often thought of as a mainly linear technique, it encompasses a wide range of mark-making methods for creating linear, tonal and textural images. This workshop offers instruction on various approaches to drypoint and the opportunity to use an array of tools and materials for working spontaneously on copper plates using both additive and deductive approaches.

Demonstrations include plate-wiping techniques to take full advantage of the drypoint burr, and color printing methods. Although no acid will be used, artists interested in using drypoint to enhance their etchings are welcome to bring etched plates, while everyone is invited to bring their imagination.

We are fortunate to have Carol Wax, the author of the book Mezzotint: History and Technique, teach a workshop at our studio each year. Don’t miss this opportunity to work with a true expert in the field of all things drypoint!
