This is a three class introduction Appropriate for students of all backgrounds and experiences. We'll cover basic mark-making skills as well as etching press operation. Participants will use traditional etching grounds and resists to etch copper plates in a ferric chloride solution. Also we will teach you ink mixing and application, plate preparation, wiping, paper tearing, and registration.
Students' specific interests will guide the Demonstrations, and there will be time for each participant to work on an single project.
