Traditional Hand-Engraving

July 29, 2018 – August 4, 2018

Ashton Ludden

This printmaking workshop demonstrates the traditional method of metal engraving using a burin to cut directly into the plate – no acid or grounds needed. Students learn image and plate preparation, tool sharpening, proper handling of the burin and printing single color and multiple colors in one run. Participants will have the opportunity to try different kinds of burins and sharpening fixtures, cut on both copper and zinc, view prints displaying a variety of approaches to the engraved line, and learn many useful troubleshooting tips. Open to all skill levels.



COURSE FEE: $525
