In-person workshop held at SNAP

Back by popular demand! After a workshop with Andrew Baldwin at Trefeglwys Printmaking in Wales this year, artist Kate Baillies is excited to share even more tips and methods of working with B.I.G. over two consecutive weekends!! The new formula is an even safer alternative to traditional asphaltum-solvent-based etching grounds. In this workshop, participants will explore this extremely versatile etching ground, discovering its potential to create the line, tone and texture qualities we love in Intaglio prints!  As we are extending the workshop over two weekends, more time is allowed to explore both the etching and printing processes. Some precious experience with etching is recommended but not required.

Scholarship Program

SNAP is pleased to offer scholarship opportunities to individuals for whom the costs of printmaking courses are a barrier. SNAP scholarships are intended for artists and individuals who would otherwise be unable to access our courses but whose creative practice would benefit from the high quality instruction and technical skill building provided from taking a printmaking course at SNAP.
SNAP printmaking classes and workshops are offered on a cost recovery basis and range in price based on materials and duration. A SNAP scholarship will cover the full cost of the course instruction and the basic material fee. For more information and application guidelines, please head to
