In this non-toxic workshop, participants will learn the basics of electro-etching and explore its endless possibilities. Participants will gain a working knowledge of preparing, degreasing, etching the plate along with the printing process itself. We will create multiple plates covering electro-line, electro-tint, open bite, electro-graphite, soft ground, and electro-galvanizing with embossment. Experimenting with different resists, we will also cover grounds including BIG and salt etching techniques.

By the end of the week, participants will feel confident enough to set up an electro-etching tank in their own studio and continue their experimental electro-etching practice.

Malgorzata Oakes

Malgorzata Oakes was born and raised in Poland, and graduated from the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art & Design in Wrocław, Poland in 2001 with an MFA in Printmaking. She is an accepted candidate to a PhD Scientific Program in Arts with a concentration in Printmaking at the Academy of Arts &

Design in Wrocław, Poland. Her processes are primarily based in experimental printmaking. She focuses on searching for alternative processes and finding new ways to repurpose elements found in nature, treating them as fibers for creating handmade paper or as new matrices for relief, intaglio, or silkscreen prints. Her latest work focuses on researching non-toxic processes in printmaking, specifically the electro-etching intaglio technique.
