Dry Point is a versatile printmaking process which involves mark making and inscribing an image into a dry point plate.
During the course you will use etching tools to indent the surface of the plate as well as applying grounds like carborundum grit to create a beautiful and unique textured image to print multiple editions. During the 5 sessions you will learn how to ink up your plate with several different techniques and print your image using the etching press. This technique is suitable for all.
