Reproduce a full tonal copper etching with a completely unique 19th century photographic process. Over the course of two days participants will expose, develop, etch, and print their own 5 x 7 inch copper plate photogravure. This is largely a technique-based class, but participants will leave the workshop with a rudimentary understanding of the process and a number of proofs or limited edition of their very own hand printed photogravure.
Level: Intermediate—Printmaking experience is recommended but not required.
