About the workshop

Tutor:   Liz Powell

Closing date 1 May 2018 Materials Fee $15

Experiment with achieving aquatint and mezzotint effects on dry point etching plates without the chemicals. We will be using cardboard and acetate plates in this workshop to push dry point past the usual line work and cross hatching and into the world of tone and chiaroscuro. There is also an emphasis on using fine and handmade papers with some tricks of the trade to make handling plant fibre papers easier to use in etching. Short cuts to multiple colour prints will be another area to explore including experiments with collage techniques through the press like chin de colle. Intaglio printing is full of exciting techniques with lots of possibilities that don’t necessarily require much specialist equipment so this workshop is suitable for beginners and the more experienced print maker alike.

We will be using turps based inks but will have odourless turps for clean up so smell is minimal.
