Rogers-Fett - Weekly - 5 Weeks


When: Thursday, May 2, 2024 - Thursday, June 6, 2024

Time:  7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. 

Location: Washington Printmakers Gallery,
                1675 Wisconsin Avenue Northwest Washington, DC 20007 

Class Description:

This eight-week class is an introduction to intaglio printmaking with a press, designed to familiarize students with a broad spectrum of techniques and materials for intaglio printmaking without acid or ferric chloride.

Each class session will include a step by step instructor demo, relevant examples from historical and contemporary print artists, and time for students to develop their own work in a supported environment.

Intaglio methods covered will include drypoint, silk aquatint, and collagraph. Students will have the opportunity to try out a variety of tools for mark making and building up tonality on zinc and acrylic plates, and gain experience in inking an intaglio plate and pulling prints. Beginners are welcome - no prior experience necessary! 

At the end of the class an exhibition with the students ‘artwork will be held at the Book Hill Georgetown library.

Bio: 

Etai Rogers-Fett is a local printmaker and arts-educator, with over ten years of teaching experience in youth and adult arts education. Etai is a current printshop artistic associate at Pyramid Atlantic Arts Center in Hyattsville and a teaching artist at Create Arts Center in Silver Spring. In his etchings, Etai draws inspiration from Jewish craft traditions of papercutting, manuscript illumination, and calligraphy to create compositions that blend decorative and narrative imagery and explore the expressive potential of Hebrew and Yiddish typography. Etai plays with the genres of Jewish book arts in order to think about how we tell and transmit stories, often weaving together archival research, folktales, oral histories, and speculative imagining.

Supplies needed:

At the end of the class, an exhibit with the students' work will be held at the Georgetown Library.
