NEW COURSE: Drypoint and Carborundum with Dolores de Sade
This one day course will explore the simplest methods for producing intaglio prints. Participants will create prints by drawing using a sharp point and course grit to produce rich and varied effects, combining line drawing with rich tone and texture. Whistler and Picasso offer the best examples of such work, which lends itself equally well to considered or technical drawing and to expressive gestural markmaking.
This course will explore a range of plates, most of which are cheap and easy to work with. Participants will create their own plates and learn to print using dampened paper and an etching press. They will have both plates and finished prints to take home with them. This course is suitable for both beginners and people with some experience in other areas of intaglio printmaking. They may wish to further their study by taking a follow on course in etching.
Participants will have enough practice of the techniques shown to be able to continue to experiment further on their own in Open Access.
