Malgorzata's Upcoming Workshops
Open to All
Students of any skill and knowledge level.
Jun 19 - 23, 2023
Electro-Etching: Exploring Surface
In this experimental workshop, open to all levels, students learn and explore various electro-etching processes. Emphasis is on safer intaglio methods and the fundamentals of electrolysis, from traditional methods of electro-line and electro-tint to innovative approaches that result in rich textures and layered imagery. Processes introduce participants to the science behind electro-etching, a non-toxic work environment, and proper equipment setup and maintenance. Students are encouraged to experiment with various resists, including BIG ground, in addition to working with salt and unconventional mark-making. By the end of this workshop, participants will have printed small editions of their own unique work embedded with various new processes.
