Unorthodox Approaches to Etching, with Brian D. Cohen
Saturday, October 25, 10 - 4pm and Sunday, October 26, 10am- 4pm.
$195, $175 Members. Plus $25 Material fee.
This workshop will explore (and perhaps newly discover) approaches to creating etched textures on metal plates, including marbling, open bite, litho coal, intentional foul biting, irregular grounds, and variations of lift ground, soft ground, white ground, and aquatint. We will take a playful, improvisatory, and experimental approach to etching, departing from the beaten track of traditional by-the-book intaglio techniques. While previous experience in etching will be helpful, novices are encouraged to participate as well.
