Join Marie Price in the pursuit of the harmonious relationship between copper, acid, and pressure! This workshop covers the basics of intaglio, from drypoint to etching.

Intaglio is a family of printmaking techniques in which an image is incised into a plate, the incised areas of the plate hold ink during the printing process. A traditional etching press is used to apply enough pressure onto the plate to transfer the ink onto cotton rag paper.

Using copper and plexi glass plates, participants will learn plate preparation, explore techniques for image making (acid and acid free), and create original prints with a press.

Marie Price is a visual artist working in Vancouver, B.C. primarily in the print medium. Born and raised in Winnipeg, she graduated from Nursing in 1968 before completing her BFA at the University of Manitoba in 1977. Currently she is working at the Malaspina studio within a format that combines etching and woodcut sometimes with monotype or painting. The print work is done on Japanese Washi* or Korean Hanji* which is then glued to the surface of either another thicker paper or in some cases to a cradled panel or canvas. The imagery is primarily figurative since it is the broad arena of human interaction from which she draws her inspiration. Originally a nurse, she utilizes her knowledge of the human body as well as her aquaintance with the enormous range of human emotions experienced in that environment. Her work has won awards and she has exhibited locally and internationally in group print shows in Europe, Australia, the US, Canada and Japan.
