Immerse yourself in the wonderful hands-on process of dry point etching or relief carving to create your own unique printed masterpiece.
In this workshop you can choose between the two techniques offered to try in your 3 hour class. You do not have to decide until you arrive and I briefly explain both processes. Which process you choose could also be determined by what you are hoping to achieve with your design.
- How to transfer an image into a suitable design for dry etch printing or relief printing.
- A basic understanding of how to use specific tools to get texture and contrast in your artwork through the use of various lines.
- How to ink a delicate dry etch plate to achieve your desired result or how to mix inks and roll using brayers to produce a relief print.
- Three A4 size prints on printmaking paper.
- Your dry etched plate or relief carved tile to take home.
