In this five-day intensive, participants will learn various techniques for creating and printing drypoint plates by combining aspects of papermaking and etching. Participants will then discuss the virtues of various papers and how they alter and inform the printing process. Chine collé and multiple-plate printing will also be demonstrated and participants will have the opportunity to test everything they have learned.
