Explore non–toxic etching with Master Printmaker Bernard Hoyes.  The etching process remains

the same, except the use of highly toxic acids are removed.  In its place, a 12-volt battery or charger,

as well as salt and water are utilized.  The positive electric current passes through a prepared plate

that is submerged in water, then a salt solution is poured over the plate.  A chemical reaction occurs

on the plate’s surface that bites or etches the exposed lines or areas.  The traditional printing

process is resumed.


Hoyes will help students to prepare and develop plates for the electrolyte process, guiding each

student through the technical process to a successful print.  Included are demonstrations and

discussions in a workshop setting with a supportive atmosphere.


Bernard Hoyes is a multi-disciplinary artist and Master Printmaker specializing in Serigraphs,
Etchings and Lithography.  He is the Founder of Caribbean Fine Arts Publishing and Kensington
Press, and has worked and printed with Self Help Graphics in Los Angeles and Brandywine
Graphic Workshop in Philadelphia.

my sanctuary, watercolor impressions of the Land, th

Being the sole guest for many stellar events, My tentacles are ever grasping, to possess the interaction of the live vistas that avail themselves. Seems I am in permanent observation, exposed to the natural changes of the Seasons.
