Tetra Pak Drypoint

September 15 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Sunday, September 15, 10 AM-5 PM

with Angela Zammarelli

Let’s reuse common household trash materials for printmaking! In this one-day workshop we will turn laminated food and beverage cartons into versatile printing plates. We will employ drypoint and varied mark making strategies to transform these humble cartons into strata with a lot of possibilities.

You will learn how to transform packaging into printing plates, how to make images on them and how to print them to get exciting results.  As simple as it sounds, these materials and techniques can be used to create gorgeous intaglio prints.

Tools that are helpful to have for this workshop are scissors, x-acto knife, and an etching needle tool. Cartons will be provided but if you have your own saved we encourage you to bring them along! Containers of interest are juice or milk cartons and containers marked with Tetra Pak (shelf stable food and beverage items’ packaging).
