$275 non-members, $245 members
$35 materials fee includes plate, ink, paper

Learn the fundamentals of etching on copper in this engaging workshop.  We’ll begin with a simple line drawing done with hardground etching using BIG ground.  After printing beautiful line etchings, we’ll add tone through Acrylic Airbrush Aquatint techniques.

This workshop will introduce participants to the use of safer etching materials and demonstrate the flexibility, ease of use and exquisite results one can achieve with copper plate etching.  We’ll also cover how to set up a ferric chloride etching bath, regulate its strength and maintain it in a personal or public print studio.

All levels welcome, no previous etching experience necessary.
