Etching is one of cornerstones of printmaking and offers endlessly fascinating possibilities for any artist. An image is etched into a metal plate using acid. Zinc, copper or steel can be used but this course focuses on copper. These etched areas sit below the surface of the metal plate and hold the ink ready for printing using an etching press.
This series of three evenings is a great way to develop your existing etching skills and although the learning curve will be somewhat steeper it is possible to attend this course if you are new to the process.
This course will introduce you to different ways of mark-making and tone control including aquatint and sugar lift techniques and the course will also cover registration methods.
As with the introductory course you will also learn to print these onto high quality printmaking papers with rich oil-based inks using our printing press.
An experimental approach is encouraged through using a range of tools to produce diverse methods of mark making and is ideal for those who enjoy drawing.
Tutors Helen Donley & Alex McIntosh
Skill level: More suited to people with basic etching knowledge although beginners are welcome to attend.
