Instructor Name: Erin Taniguchi
Course Title: Introduction to Etching: Hard Ground
Dates: POSTPONED to a later date.

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.

  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,
