Intaglio (Etching) & Relief

The main printmaking studio has three intaglio presses. We welcome many styles of printmaking: woodcut, linocut, engraving, etching, Solarplate™, drypoint, monoprint, and collagraph.

Our dedicated etching room is set up for copper plate etching with horizontal ferric chloride baths.

Art Gym is not set up with nitric acid for etching zinc plates.


Shared Press Access $5 per daily use.

Beginning January 1, 2019 the daily use intaglio shop fee is being waived!

Printmaking members can use the intaglio presses in a community environment with shared press use at no extra cost. Rags, tarlatan, and non-toxic cleaners included.

Members can still reserve private press time at $5/hour if needed.
