Course Description

Join Bob Morouney (SSANC’s visiting artist-in-residence back in March!) in our printmaking studio for a fun but thorough two and a bit-day workshop in copperplate etching. During the course of the workshop, you will etch and print from two copper plates, learning the techniques for how to prepare, etch, and finish the plates, transfer drawings, and pull prints. Classes are limited to only six participants for plenty of workspace and instruction time. All supplies are included.

Artist’s Bio

Bob Morouney is disinclined to talk about his 1987 BA in Eng Lit, or his Fine Arts studies 1999-2003, ditto Japanese 2003-5, all at a university in Canada’s Atlantic Provinces though he cannot mention which due to a restraining order. Bob admits he instigated Hidden House Press, his infamous printmaking atelier, in 2004. He faked his death from 2005-6 to study shodō with Nakamura Shouin in Funabashi, Japan, and engrave at the Machida City Printmaking Museum. From then until now Bob’s unwittingly participated in numerous group exhibitions. He’s had at least as many solo exhibitions as one can count on both hands after a minor industrial accident. His work is in the provincial Art Bank collecting interest. An experienced workshop leader, Bob’s also participated in uncounted vagrancies, absences, and several residencies in Canada and Ireland. In 2015, Bob’s The Red Book, a poetry manuscript, unaccountably won first place for the Alfred G. Bailey Prize. Potter Rachel Morouney married Bob with a BDD (Best Divorce Date) still some years in the future. They live in Otter Creek, NB. Their motto is: art puts beauty into the world, pottery puts food on the tabl
