Low Tech Etching Class

This is a two day class.

In this very hands on class, you will learn the basics of etching that 
can easily be done in your own home or studio. You will learn several 
different ways of transferring your design on the metal including 
Sharpie pens, paint pens, tape, rub on letters and more.  We will use 
a non-toxic solution to etch copper and brass and then explore 
different ways to patina your etched pieces.  Robert will also 
demonstrate several ways of incorporating your etched designs into 
finished work including die forming, cold connections and anticlastic 

The materials and tools are inexpensive, safe and easily available and 
the techniques quickly learned.

Tuition will include 6”x6” of copper (enough for numerous examples) – 
more copper can be purchased during the class if desired.





Your tutor for this class will be Robert Dancik
