Go Green: Safer Intaglio
June 21, 2020 – June 27, 2020
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.
COURSE FEE: $600
