Explore the endless possibilities of working with a copper plate and learn historical and experimental approaches to the medium of Intaglio Printmaking! We will learn plate preparation, both hard ground and soft ground etching with ferric chloride, along with direct drawing through manipulation of the copper plate’s tactile surface with dry-point, scraping, and burnishing. Create your own plates and explore the printing process, including ink modification and chine colle. Come back in the evening after class to use the studio and further devlop your masterpieces alongside your classmates! You will leave this course with the ability to discern and produce impression quality prints of your plates and an overall understanding of proper press and equipment use. All levels are welcome! No prior experience is required.
