Have you ever wanted to try printmaking? This FREE workshop on Basic Intaglio Printmaking is just what you need!
Artist, Printer and Living Historian Andy Volpe will host a workshop at the BVAA meeting on Tuesday February 20, 2024, to demonstrate some basics on an Intaglio platemaking technique known as Drypoint, using plexiglass, plastic sheet and some other possible materials for printing plates.
He’ll also show and talk about some of his work in both modern and traditional techniques.
Members should bring some sort of metal scribing tool (nail, X-acto knife, etc.) and think about a simple image to work on, thumbnail size (around 3 inch x 4 inch) due to limited timeframe. Then we’ll print! Andy will look to bring a portable rolling press.
Paper, ink and plates will be provided

This meeting and session is free and open to the public. No experience is necessary. The fun of our workshops is that we all learn new things we’ve never done before.
Our meetings cover BVAA organization business from 6:30-7:00pm and then go into the workshop part of the evening. Feel free to come for whichever half interests you the most. In general, our monthly meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month unless otherwise announced.
All are welcome – this workshop is open to members and non-members. Feel free to bring along a friend! We’d love to see you there to learn some new things and explore your creativity!
