Go Green: Safer Intaglio

June 21, 2020 – June 27, 2020

Melissa Harshman

Are you interested in “greening up” your intaglio studio and tired of those nasty fumes? This workshop covers safe studio practices for intaglio printing. Students will use big ground for hard/soft ground applications, airbrush for aquatints and coffee lift ground for sugar lift. Safer ground removal and clean-up are discussed as well as oil-based and water-based inks. Participants will leave with a sample plate of various processes. This workshop is ideal for seasoned printmakers who want to clean up their shop practices, however it is also applicable for those with no prior intaglio experience.


Melissa Harshman teaches in the Printmaking and Book Arts Department at the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia. She received her MFA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Harshman has exhibited widely throughout the U.S. and abroad. Her awards include a Willson Center for the Humanities and Arts Research Fellowship and a 2019 Senior Faculty Research Grant titled Explorations in Papermaking.
