Description

Photo etching can be used to incorporate text, imagery or patterns onto metal surfaces. It’s often used in printmaking, but can also serve as a way of texturing or personalizing adornments. This workshop will focus on one specific photo etching technique in which laser-printed images are heat-transferred onto copper or brass and etched in a nontoxic chemical bath.

No prior experience is necessary for participation in this workshop, however, there will be an opportunity for students to transform their etchings into jewelry pieces. Therefore, basic jewelry skills such as sawing, filing, bending and soldering are helpful to have. The instructor will supply a selection of imagery for participants to choose from, although students are welcome to bring their own laser print transfers to incorporate into the process.
