Master printmaker and Oregon State University art professor Yuji Hiratsuka teaches his distinct and engaging method of producing beautiful full-color images from a single copper plate. Yuji will be demonstrating and guiding participants through the techniques and materials of this delightful process, including paper and ink selection, registration tricks and mounting the completed print on heavy rag paper for final presentation. You'll learn about intaglio printing, dye inks, thin washi (kozo/mulberry) paper, chine collé and a variety of etching techniques, including aquatint, photocopy transfer, roulette and spit bite.
All materials and supplies for the workshop are provided to you, including a 9" x 12" copper plate, papers, inks and tools. Extra paper will be available for purchase at the studio. Please bring to the workshop at least one image ready to trace onto your plate.
