Introduction to Non-toxic Etching–Two Day Workshop
This basic, introductory workshop provides students with all the information they need to create a rich line etching and aquatint using non-toxic methods. Students will learn to prepare their plates, coat them with hardground, etch and print them. We will cover aquatint to create luscious grays similar to those seen in Goya’s etchings. This process was originated in the 16th century and was made famous by artists such as Rembrandt and Turner. This workshop is open to students who are just beginning and those who need a refresher course.
