This is an introductory intaglio workshop that covers the basics of copper etching. Processes that will be taught in this workshop include hard and soft ground etching, aquatint, and chine collé. Previous printmaking knowledge is recommended but not necessary, however, participants should have some basic drawing and art-making skills. Each student will receive two 4”x 6” copper plates, etching tools, and printing paper. The first three weeks will be spent learning how to do a basic line etching with aquatint, inking and wiping the plates (one color and a la poupée), printing the plates, and creating an edition of prints. The final three weeks will be spent learning chine collé and soft ground etching. Participants should leave this course with a basic understanding of intaglio and a portfolio of prints.
