Under Pressure: Glass and Print
August 12, 2018 – August 18, 2018
Hannah Marie Smith
During this workshop, that combines glass and paper, students are introduced to vitreography, a printmaking process that capitalizes on the unique physical properties of glass, and offers artists and printmakers a new way of working with color, pattern and texture. You will discover how imagery is etched onto the surface of thick glass plates through a variety of cold working techniques that include sandblasting, diamond tip engraving, and acid etching. Then, participants will use the plates to create inked impressions on paper. Through small scale-investigations, students will complete multiple prints. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $595
