The workshop practice is strongly underlined. This course is regarded as the basic module for an initial approach to the main themes of printmaking: a solid knowledge of the tools and the specific materials, preparation of zinc or copper plates from the beveling of the edge to the application of the ground; sketch conception, execution of drawing and their transferral to the plate; introduction to black an white etching and aquatint, including practical work; an a basic train of other printmaking techniques (drypoint, soft ground etching, pastel-manner, sugar-lift) introduction to printing processes with a hand-operated press and relative exercises, including some print variation.
