This intaglio workshop will focus on using BIG Ground as an alternative to the much more toxic asphaltum hard ground. In this workshop students will learn the basics of preparing and printing an etched plate. Experienced printmakers are also welcome as we will be covering a number of printing and cleaning products that are less-toxic alternatives to traditional materials. All students will learn how to use BIG as a soft ground for pressing textures into plates and as a hard ground for line work. This versatile ground will allow students to experiment with a wide range of textures and mark-making.

Materials Needed:

Paper: 2 – 5 sheets of Stonehenge (90 lb 22”x30”) or Rives BFK (250 – 280 gsm 22”x30”). They come in a range of colors as well as white, but avoid buying black.

Etching Needle (1)
Paper Towels (1)
Pencils (a range of softness is recommended but not required)

Tracing paper

All other materials will be provided by the studio, including copper plates and ink.

This workshop is part of the Etching Series. Chine Colle All Day! is another Etching Series workshop being offered November 2nd- November 3rd. While it is not required to take BIGger is Better beforeChine Colle All Day, it can be useful for students to create a plate in preparation for the chine colle workshop. Because of this we are offering a DISCOUNT: sign up for either workshop at regular price or sign up for both for a total of $310! Feel free to contact the instructor for more details.
