Engraving Plexiglass for Intaglio


Instructor: Elise Charles

Date/time: Sundays, Oct. 22 & 291-4pm

Cost:  $92


This two session workshop focuses on beginning engraving on plexiglass. Engraving on plexiglass can be an alternative to copper as no etching or chemicals are required. Simple drawings or marks are best for plexiglass engraving but anything is possible.

Participants will learn how to transform their drawing or designs in onto and prepare a plexiglass plate, how to use engraving tools to carve in plexiglass, and will be able to work independently by the end of the workshop to complete a series of at least 3 prints. We will look at a variety of mark making and alternative ways of creating carvings are encouraged.
