What You’ll Do
Intaglio is a printmaking technique that involves etching a design onto a copper plate, covering the plate in ink, and pressing the plate against paper to transfer the design. In this workshop, printmaker Kyle Hobratschk walks you through the entire process and provides you the tools you need to embellish your own copper plate. After you finish your drawing, you’ll place your plate inside a press and watch as your design is printed on a piece of humidified paper. At the end of the session, you’ll be able to take both your print and your copper plate home.
Learn the Intaglio Process Step by Step
After a conversational overview of the printmaking process, you’ll begin by etching a custom design onto a 5”x7” copper plate using provided tools, materials, and still-life objects for reference.
Ink your Plate by Hand
Cover your plate in black ink and send it through a press, where it’ll transfer your drawing onto a piece of humidified paper. Students should wear clothes they wouldn’t mind getting a little ink on.
Leave with Your Own Work of Art
Take your print and copper plate home after the session.
Artist and Printmaker
Kyle Hobratschk can tackle many art forms, but at his core, he’s a passionate drawer. His intaglio print designs all begin with lines and arcs, no matter if they’re depicting the New Mexico landscape or historic homes throughout Dallas. He’s become so skilled at the printmaking process that he’s demonstrated his techniques at Nasher Sculpture Center, Meadows Museum, and Dallas Museum of Art. He also leads intaglio and watercolor workshops for both teenagers and adults at Oil and Cotton.
