Intaglio Etching & Aquatint ($95.00)


In this workshop students will learn about the etching process - a method utilized by artists as diverse as Albrecht Durer to Jasper Johns and Kiki Smith. Working with a variety of etching and engraving tools provided by the instructor, students will learn how to coat a piece of copper in an acid-resistant ground, draw into the copper to craft an image, etch the plate using ferric chloride acid, and then finally how to ink, wipe and print a series of 5 prints. While the steps of this process may be numerous, in practice etching is both approachable and beautifully rewarding. All materials provided.

Duration of Workshop: 4 hours (2 2-hour sessions during consecutive weekends)

Location: Pegboard Press at Gathered Glassblowing Studio (23 N. Huron St. Toledo, OH. 43604)
