This weekend workshop will combine basic silkscreen techniques with traditional etching to create an experimental form of photo etching. The first part of the workshop will be dedicated to exposing a half-toned image to a silkscreen and then transferring it onto a copper plate for etching.

Throughout the weekend course, students will be shown demonstrations that will further their knowledge of the intaglio process. Students should bring inspiring imagery or resource material to work from; includes all other materials. Previous printmaking experience helpful.
