Introduction to Etching (6-evenings)

Regular price £210.00 £0.00
Tax included.

This six-evening course is designed to give you a basic understanding of different approaches to etching.

You will be taken through various techniques which produce different printed results, from fine lines, hand drawn marks to painterly washes.

All the techniques involve creating an image on to a metal plate, this can be done by hand or by transfer methods. The image is then etched into the metal , inked up and printed using an etching press.

During the sessions you will learn how to prepare the plates and paper, transfer your images and use acids to etch the designs into the metal. You will then be guided through how to ink up the plate and use a press to make prints using specialist printmaking papers.
