In this monthly workshop, we will experiment with monotype and drypoint techniques, two forms that have a wide range of image-making possibilities, We’ll be using our new Praga 30″ x 48″ etching press, which has been generously donated to the Makers’ Mill. Ink and plates will be provided. Bring your own brushes, larger plates, stencils, colored inks and paper and or buy paper at cost from instructor. No previous printmaking experience necessary but all levels welcome!
Note: Become a member and attend for $10. Code: member. This counts as an equipment training on the press, and you’ll be all set to work on your own anytime!
