Participants in this workshop will learn a technique conceived by Picasso in the early 1960s “epreuves rincees”, or “rinsed proofs”. After printing a heavy deposit of ink, often white, onto the paper, the entire sheet is rinsed with water based dye which adheres only to the areas left blank. Participants will bring in blocks and plates which are ready to be printed and rinsed in this experimental workshop. A variety of printing methods, inks and dyes will be used to create unique and often unexpected results.
