Christmas Holiday // The Etching Week

In this intensive one week printing course students will study the main intaglio methods of etching, aquatint, sugar lift and dry point. Working on metal is different and inspirational. The emphasis will be on the ability of drawing to expand with renewed quality into an etched surface. By exploring various technical sensitivities, a new layer of visual vocabulary can be added at each stage of the printing process. Students will experiment with monoprint, multi-plate print, stencils, surface roll-ups and chine-collé. The ability to create original etchings opens the door for exploration in making cards and hand-made artists’ books. It is a powerful medium with which to reveal one’s vision and to present an etching to someone for Christmas can be an original gift. Suitable for all levels including beginners.
