Are you curious about intaglio printmaking but have never had a chance to try it? Well then, Beginning Intaglio is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for. This is an introductory intaglio course that will focus primarily on etching techniques using copper plates and non-toxic ferric chloride solution. We will cover drypoint, line etch, aquatint (rosin, soft ground, spray paint, spit bite), multiple plate registration as well as plate preparation, paper preparation and printing fundamentals. Students in this class will have the opportunity to create a small, two-color image using any/all of the techniques mentioned above. All skill levels welcome.
