Linear engraving in copper plates is the oldest of the Intaglio techniques. The image is engraved, line by line with a tool called a burin, into a flat copper plate. Although patience and skill are needed to handle the burin, the results are worth the effort. Engraving lends itself to elegant and subtle lines and startlingly contemporary imagery. This weekend class presents the basics: how to handle the burin, lay the lines and print. Students will first execute basic lines to become familiar with the burin and then engrave and print a small image. Previous etching experience is recommended.
