Etching: Tetra Pak As A Printmaking Medium

May 18

Teachers: Margo Geddes
Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Time: 4:00 PM

In this adult workshop inspired by Terry Karson: Human/Nature create intaglio prints with the etching press using recycled Tetra Pak containers as fun, simple, and low-tech printing plates. Bring your sketches or let the material inspire your drawing and discover this fun, low impact, and nontoxic printmaking method. Explore the basics of dry point and collagraph techniques. Create plates and print them using Akua’s soy-based intaglio inks. Join us for a fun and experimental afternoon creating art from materials that would otherwise end up in the landfill!
