When Cambridge Galleries opened a new printmaking studio as part of its Design at Riverside gallery, classes were offered in - among other things - etching and drypoint. A small group of people took an etching course from instructor Brian Musson. They enrolled again and again, developing in the process their their own little atelier or workshop, and continuing to learn from Musson and from each other. They became a group of artists and friends that enjoy exploring the almost infinite variety that this ancient art form offers. Current members include; Amanda Chesney, Heather Franklin, Kari Melhus Mullin, Darryl Nunn, Betty Praught, Bill Praught, David Scott, and Donna Stewart.
