Scratch an Etch (2 Day Workshop)

Learn the age-old art of etching as the Smart Museum and Spudnik Press team up in this two-day printmaking workshop.

On the first day of the workshop, August 11, we’ll tour the Prints and Privacy exhibition at the Smart with curator Anne Leonard and then retire to the “studio” to etch our on our own copper plates! On the following Thursday, August 18, join us at Spudnik Press, as Founder Angee Lennard takes us behind the scenes as we finish our plates, wipe them, and send them through the press!

Free, but space is limited. Please register in advance through the Smart Museum.
