In Studio with Oolite: Drypoint Etching on Plexiglass

June 8 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This workshop is designed to introduce participants to drypoint etching. Drypoint etching is a great medium for artists who love to draw. Participants will learn how to create line work on an acrylic plate (plexiglass) and edition them using an etching press. Participants will get a sense of how it feels to work in a communal space surrounded by artists with similar interests. They will also learn to use and respect a large fine art press. Students will leave the class with a working knowledge of shop etiquette, line variation, printing techniques, and a unique printed edition. This workshop will qualify participants to book unassisted studio time at the PRINTshop.
