Saturday Printmaking Workshops_Stages de l’Estampe
The workshop focuses on monotype printmaking, a technique that does not involve carving or etching an image into a plate. The process, which can be simple or elaborate, is like painting with oils on a smooth surface. That surface is then rolled under the pressure of a metal cylinder on an etching press with a sheet of damp rag paper placed on top of it. The image painted on the plate is transfered to paper, creating a one-of-a-kind print. Visit classes | cours for information for current dates.
