Adding new life to your pasta machine by learning how to use it to create small dry-point prints. This genius technique uses the pressure that normally rolls out the pasta dough to print artwork.
In this class students will learn how to use an Akua printmaking plate made for drypoint, ink up the plate, add packing to their pasta maker for the perfect impression, then will pull prints and make a small edition.
The small-format prints created in class will be about 2” by 4.” Prints will be made using a drypoint needle and will be printed on Rives BFK paper with Charbonnel etching ink.
*The pasta machine that is used for printing does not get any ink on it, so using it for pasta AND printing is perfectly fine. Oil based etching ink will be used during class the instructor will demonstrate how easy it is to clean up without any heavy cleaning solution.
Materials to Bring: pasta maker - if you have one (only the basic maker is needed, we do not need the cutting or ravioli part!); ideas for small prints – you can come with sketches. It’ll be very easy to transfer them onto the plate material since it is see-through!
Workshop Fee (includes $25* materials fee): $85.00
*Materials fee includes drypoint needle, chipboard & felts that students will be able to take home to continue making prints on their own pasta machines.
