During the months of June and July, Crown Point Press offers week-long workshops in etching and photogravure. The workshops are open to artists, printmakers, graduate students, and any lay person interested in learning about etching or honing their skills. Each workshop runs Monday through Friday, 9-5, and is limited to ten participants in etching, four in photogravure, and is led by the Crown Point master printers. No experience is necessary in order to attend the etching workshops though experience in intaglio is a prerequisite for taking the photogravure workshop. All imagery is created by hand-drawing on plates during the etching workshops; there is no photographic process used to transfer imagery. Each participant works at his or her own pace.
