Etching Copper with Ferric Cholride Workshop
3 – 5PM
During 120 minutes of the hands-on workshop, artist Sara Blumenstein will guide you to create an etching art using copper and other tools.
Ferric chloride is an easy to use, fairly benign, chemical for etching images into copper. Rubber stamps, permanent markers, and printer transfer paper can all be used to create complex designs. You never really know what you will get when the piece is cleaned up, but it’s usually a nice surprise. Participants will be able to etch and take with them their own finished design on a copper blank. All necessary materials will be provided.
