Etch a Sketch
In this workshop you’ll learn all about etching and printing copper plates. We’ll look at historic and contemporary examples of the process and discuss ways to successfully transfer your ideas and images into finished prints. We’ll cover line etch, aquatint, spit bite, monoprinting, chine collé, and multiple-plate printing. Expect to finish the week with the knowledge needed to prepare plates, etch, print, edition, and curate your work. All levels. Code 07X
