Student Material List
This course will serve as an introduction to the process of intaglio printmaking. The foundations of this course include mark making by means of drypoint, scribing directly into a copper plate, and creating an etched line on a copper plate using a ferric chloride solution. Instruction will also be given on the wide spectrum of tools—burnishers, scrapers, and roulettes—utilized in the manipulation of the plate.
Additionally, we will explore basic techniques of aquatint through the use of spray paint in order to achieve rich tonal ranges. Students will become confident with the operation and set up of a traditional printing press as well as the fundamentals of preparing a plate and printing. Participants will have the opportunity to print multiple plates and explore color processes. No prior printmaking experience is required.

Emily taught this class last summer and really, the work that the students were able to do was astounding. Many, many college courses would come up short in comparison with this week’s intensive with Emily. I know, I took that class. She’s thoughtful, prolific, and runs a tight shop. I know this class will be excellent.
