This workshop will begin with everyone creating an intaglio image on a 10”x10” copper plate. Once done and printed, you will then begin to explore the myriad ways you can change the interpretation of an image through diverse printing and post-printing techniques. You will learn, and subsequently incorporate, chine collé, monotype, surface roll, overprinting your own image on itself by rotating the plate, as well as collaborating with each other- an exploration which will add entirely new narrative and/or compositional elements to your image. This project stimulates experimentation with layering, stencils, collage, sewing, hand-coloring, folding and creating 3D elements.
