This self-directed 4-evening series offers participants the opportunity to develop intaglio projects and technical skills in an open studio format. Feedback and critique from fellow participants, alongside instructor support will provide a supportive format. Students will be encouraged to develop individual print projects or focus on technical development. In-depth handouts and demonstrations using the methods employed at Zea Mays Printmaking (including BIG hardground and softground, drypoint, airbrush aquatint, lift grounds and etching on copper in ferric chloride), as well as printing and editioning techniques will be provided on an as needed basis. Students will have full-access to the etching facility and printing presses with the instructor available to troubleshoot, assist with plate development and printing, and provide personalized, individual assistance. This workshop is for every level of etcher who wants to explore the possibilities of working independently on copper. No prior etching experience required. Students who enroll in this workshop also receive 6 hours of open studio time outside of class in the Zea Mays Members’ studio.
