About the Workshop:
After 30+ years of working successfully with artists of all caliber to bring their work and ideas to fruition, Master Printer Gregory Burnet will share his experience and technical expertise with the workshop participants, offering insight into the collaborative process of working one on one with a Master Printer. During this workshop he’ll share his broad technical knowledge that intaglio artists need to achieve the best possible results. Techniques covered will include a wide range, from the basic to the most advanced: press set up, choosing papers, paper preparation, ink modification, inking and wiping, drypoint, etching, engraving, spit bite using Ferric Chloride, multiple plate registration and printing, flattening and curation of the edition.
