Upcoming classes

In light of the recent health advisories around COVID-19, and in particular, the BC Minster of Health’s statement of March 16 morning,  Dundarave is cancelling all our show openings and  classes for the next two weeks.
We want to stress that there have been no cases of COVID-19 linked to Dundarave. This measure is being taken for the safety of our community and out of an abundance of caution.
We will be closed to the public effective immediately (March 16th) until April 1st.
During the next two weeks, we will re-evaluate the situation and as guided by BC Center for Disease Control and Fraser Health, will update you accordingly.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging and unprecedented time for our community.
Please continue to monitor our website and social media for additional updates.

Instructor Name: Erin Taniguchi
Course Title: Introduction to Etching: Hard Ground
Dates: May 5 – June 9

Course Description

This class is an introduction to intaglio techniques on copper. We will focus on line quality using hard ground and a mordant. We will also explore the tactile possibilities of combining etched lines with drypoint. No printmaking experience is necessary. Students will learn basic shop safety, manual press operation, how to prepare a plate for hard ground, and how to ink and print a plate. Everyone will have the opportunity to print a small edition of etchings. Students will be required to supply their own paper and Solvex nitrile gloves – all available at Opus on Granville Island.

One thought on “Upcoming classes

  1. Hello
    Are there still spaces in the May, lino cut relief workshop? And will there be another course similar to this held again in the summer?
    Many thanks,
