In this 3-day intensive, participants will be introduced to safer intaglio through experimentation with various electro-etching processes. Participants will gain a working knowledge of the science behind electro-etching, safely preparing and etching their metal plates as well as maintaining a non-toxic work environment. There will be no chemicals, no acids as well as no harmful grounds used during the etching process.

The class will cover traditional ground equivalents such as electro-line, electro-tint, open bite, and sugar lift technique. Participants will not only print a small edition of their own design, but also gain the knowledge and confidence to set up their own electro-etching tanks in their home studios.

All materials included.

Workshop Location: Ground Floor Etching Studio
