Accommodating both the novice and advanced engraving student, this class will present a series of formal exercises to build cutting skills, and introduce modeling and shading techniques employed by the early masters of copperplate engraving. Fundamentals of correct tool conditioning and handling will be emphasized, as well as advanced techniques for layout and plate handling. In addition to the introductory exercises, students may choose to execute either an assigned project or their own design.
