This class is part one of an intensive series of etching classes with artist Kazuko Watanabe that will provide extensive instruction in etching techniques. The first class, Etching 1, will introduce participants to basic intaglio techniques using a range of traditional, contemporary, and new methods. Participants will be led through a series of exercises in various etching techniques, and will also be introduced to various papers, and printing methods.
