Drypoint is the perfect intaglio printmaking method for artists who love to draw. We’ll use professional etching tools to scratch imagery into a matrix, then print it using non-toxic Akua™ inks and a flatbed press. Not a drawer? The plate is see-through acrylic allowing you to trace various drawing examples we’ll have on hand, or bring your own. Participants will leave with a small edition of prints and skills for future drypoint printmaking.

$100 covers instruction and includes a $25 supply fee, we will take a break for lunch. No minimum enrollment, payment link sent in a separate email once people have registered.
