More information

During this workshop we will discover the traditional materials of drypoint and some more experimental possibilities. We will engrave plexiglass matrices and print them with sustainable inks and the use of the intaglio press.
Drypoint lends itself very well to irregular inking, allowing us to create very expressive “monoprints”. In fact, during the printing phase we will explore the possibilities of the variable edition, making each print a unique copy with different inks.
