Printmaking: Relief and Intaglio Processes

9:30am–12:30pm Wednesdays, March 7-28
(4 sessions)

Instructor: Leslie Nan Moon

Join instructor Leslie Moon as she teaches you two different printmaking techniques using the printing press: Relief and Intaglio. You will learn how to prepare your plates for each technique, transfer your ideas, ink the plate, print your designs and sign your work. A great workshop for beginners and those with previous experience too. ALL levels welcome!

This workshop is in two parts. You may register for either one or both below.

March 7 & 14 – Relief Printing

Learn the beautiful technique of relief (block) printing in this workshop. Acquire all the skills needed to create and enjoy making your own relief prints. Students will create at least one carved block and we will be experimenting with several different inking techniques.

Blocks, paper, inks and instructional handout provided. Students should come prepared with some ideas (helpful if sketches/reference materials are 4″x6″ which is the size of the plate we will be using)

March 21 & 28 – Intaglio

A great introduction to the intaglio process. Intaglio, or drypoint, is done by drawing directly on a plate using a sharp pointed tool without using acid. Drypoint is known for its velvety, rich, tonal line and textural quality that results when a burr is lifted in the metal (or plexiglass) plate during the drawing process. Students will create one image and we will spend the afternoon drawing, proofing and printing.

Plexiglass plates, paper, inks and instructional handout provided. Students should come prepared with some ideas (helpful if sketches/reference materials are 5″x7″ which is the size of the plate we will be using)
