Create original plates to produce a unique series of prints. 

You will learn techniques in relief printing where a reproducible image is created by carving wood or linoleum, as well as intaglio printing where the lines of an image are incised into copper and printed.

Students will also design and print their own textiles. We will consider the culture and evolution of hand-designed textiles and explore the landscapes, artifacts, textures, and palettes that inform who we are.

Students are introduced to drypoint, engraving, and etching techniques. You will learn how to prepare plates, work directly into copper, apply ink, and print on a press. You’ll use these skills to work on individual projects of your choice, such as an artist’s book or an edition of finished prints.

Students of all levels of experience are welcome.
