Embossing and Debossing involve printing without ink by using the plate and press to create a physical impression on paper. The processes are related techniques that create different results. Embossing produces a raised impression onto paper (or other surface) while Debossing does the opposite, making a depression in the paper. Students may (but they are not required to) bring existing plates to class such as relief and deep etched intaglio plates for embossment, collagraph, and carborundum plates for debossment. In the class we will construct simple relief and intaglio plates using cardboard, fabrics, and other materials. imited to 8 stude
