Learn how to prepare and etch a metal plate, work with non toxic inks, and print on Western and Japanese paper using a small etching press. Class size is limited allowing individual attention. Beginners are welcome. Come out and see how etching would be a fabulous addition to your book arts practice!


Liz Menard is a Toronto-based printmaker, visual artist, and educator. Her practice includes drawing, painting, and printmaking. “My interest is in landscape and how our perception of the landscape helps us define who we think we are. I am particularly drawn to water – especially fens, bogs, streams, rivers and lakes as well as the life these systems support. However, I am increasingly concerned about not only our water, but the native plant species and wildlife which our water systems sustain. Like our environment, these things need to be cared for, protected, and nurtured. Please visit Liz’s website: www.lizmenard.ca
