This workshop will introduce a variety of non-toxic intaglio techniques that substitute for the more toxic methods often associated with etching and aquatint. Collagraph, silk aquatint, carborundum aquatint, drypoint, mezzotint, and photopolymer intaglio will all be convered. Working on a small scale, participants will get to explore these varied techniques to better expand their vocabulary of mark making and expressive skills. Focus will be made on exploring the large range of possibilities that come with intaglio and learning the fundamentals associated with these techniques.
