DRYPOINT – CHINE COLLÉ
SUN – MAY 28, 2023 – 10:00AM to 4:00PM EDT
Chine Collé is a printmaking technique that enables you to add colour to your prints without making additional plates. Loosely translated as glued tissue, Chine Collé is a simple method that allows thinner papers such as Japanese washi, fine decorative papers, or even newspaper and book pages, to be integrated within a single print to produce an interesting and dynamic piece.
We will be using this process in combination with drypoint printmaking, which involves the use of a sharp scribe tool to create a range of marks and values on a plexiglass plate. Incorporating Chine Collé will enable you to add a colour, texture and pattern to your drypoint prints.
No previous experience necessary but a basic knowledge of intaglio printmaking is a plus.
This course offers hands-on experience with plates, papers, ink, and the etching press. Studio etiquette, protocols, and best practices will be introduced throughout. Participants will leave with a fundamental knowledge and appreciation of Chine Collé, and a small edition of 3-5 drypoint prints on fine paper.
