PRINTMAKING: RELIEF PRINT AND INTAGLIO TECHNIQUES
3° Course: JULY 18 - 30, 2017
Prof. Dariusz Kaca - Head of the Woodcut Techniques and Artistic Book Studio
Oskar Gorzkiewicz, MA
The aim of the course is to acquaint participants with the arcane of printmaking in its broad meaning. The activities have been chosen in such a manner as to creatively transform the projects realized by participants into the language of graphic art. The course includes breaking down and transferring projects onto plates, the manner of setting multiple plate prints created in one or many techniques and different ways of cutting and developing plates.
Participants will have an opportunity to create a wide range of forms from representative to abstract. The course will provide the following relief techniques: plaster printing, woodcut, single plate linocut, black and white; chiaroscuro woodcut; multi-colour linocut or woodcut with the effect of resultant colour, and intaglio techniques: collagraphy, drypoint, etching and aquatint. There will be a possibility of using textures of ready materials to prepare plates.
