Drypoint Intaglio Printmaking
January 26 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Printmaker Adrienne Lichliter will demonstrate how to use drypoint tools to create line-based intaglio prints. Intaglio is a type of printing where ink is wiped over a plate leaving ink in any indented or abraded surfaces. The ink is transferred to paper via a printing press. The result is repeatable black and white drawing, similar to an etching, but requires no toxic chemicals, rosin, or acid baths. Each participant will receive a small piece of copper to work on and keep.
This workshop is designed to train CU Artists in using our print station for this process. We have opened tickets up to the public to learn the process as well, but as it is only three hours students will only sample the process and may not have time for intricate drawing. Participants are welcome to purchase Day Pass tickets to be able to use the printmaking station to continue exploring the process in the future. Day Pass is held the first Saturday of each month.
