Zea Mays Printmaking is fortunate to have Friedhard Kiekeben, Associate Professor of Art at Columbia College Chicago, and Printmaking Pioneer | Publisher of ‘nontoxicPrint.com’ and ‘SafePainting.com’, and co-author of ‘The Contemporary Printmaker’ (NY 2003) presents a three-day workshop focusing on etching zinc and aluminum plates for printing, sculpture and assemblage, using the Metal Salt etching methods co-developed by Friedhard Kiekeben in the UK.

Autographic, reprographic, and digital artwork, plate, and print generation will be explored through slide shows and practical demonstrations. The emphasis is on each participant’s creative vision, and realization of a personal project within contemporary art practice utilizing safe mark-making media and resists, metal salt etching, and innovative approaches to printmaking.

The workshop will also include a presentation on non-toxic printmaking since the 1990s.
