Learn the Printmaking Technique of Engraving

Engraving is an intaglio technique of incising lines onto a hard flat surface like plexi glass, steel, or copper. For this class we will use plexi glass. We will use a tool to with a sharpened needle like end to create grooves into the plexi glass. The surface is then inked and wiped and the incised lines hold the ink. It is then run through a press to create your image. Engraving allows for multiple prints called an edition. Two famous engravers are Albrecht Dürer and William Blake. This class is for adults and requires registration. Please register here: https://calendar.libraryweb.org/event/4830360
