The goal of this workshop is to explore a wide range of linear, tonal, and textural effects, possibly using an array of tools and drypoint techniques. Instruction is designed to meet varied artistic styles, cover the basics for beginners, and offer new approaches to drypoint that experienced printmakers may not have previously considered.  Individual needs and interests are addressed through one-on-one coaching on the most appropriate uses of these techniques for developing one’s visions.

Drypoint encompasses a wide range of techniques for incising images directly on copper plates without the use of acid. The ability to work tonally and linearly, using additive and deductive approaches, makes drypoint one of the most spontaneous and versatile printmaking mediums.  In this workshop, participants learn how to use scribes, roulettes, stipplers, gravers, and other metalsmithing tools to draw richly textured linear and nuanced tonal images. Uses of drypoint and carborundum for creating grounds that may be worked in the mezzotint manner are also covered. Individual attention gives beginners solid introduction, helps experienced printmakers expand their approach to the medium, and allows all participants to work at their own pace.
