Intaglio is a printmaking process in which an etched or engraved surface is smeared with ink, wiped clean, and the recessed ink is transferred to paper through a printing press.
Participants will meet for three weeks in CCP’s studios on Mondays with Master Printer Christopher Shore to learn the basics of intaglio printmaking. Between each meeting, participants have the option to schedule their own private studio time to apply the techniques learned in each session.
CHRISTOPHER SHORE received his MFA in printmaking from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. He has studied printmaking in Venice and Florence. His work explores many traditional and non-traditional printmaking techniques and has been exhibited internationally. Chris is the Staff Master Printer at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking.
