4 Day Workshop
Saturday - Sunday, May 27 – 28 and June 3 – 4, from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The soft-ground workshop will introduce students to the process of etching copper plates. The process is fun, direct, and simple. Soft-ground is a delicate, waxy coating that can be imprinted with found objects or drawn into to create beautiful tonal variations and linework. Topics covered will include techniques in etching, image development, safer mordents, color plate registration, and various printing methods. Each participant will produce a limited edition print during the workshop.

Jon Goebel is an Associate Professor of Art at the University of Hawaii at Hilo where he also serves as the Printmaking Director and Master Printer for the Art Department. He is a nationally recognized artist known for his symbolically charged print works. He has received multiple awards for his intaglio work and shown in over 100 group exhibitions across the United States and abroad including China, Portugal, Bulgaria, Argentina, Spain, South Korea, Canada, India, and Puerto Rico.
