Introduction to hand Etching 1

Introduction to hand Etching 1

An introduction to traditional etching techniques.

2-day course
Saturday 10th September - Sunday 11th September

Using the immediate environment both inside and outside the studio as source material you will generate a series of prints. Starting with drawing media to explore subject matter, the workshop will develop and discuss the use of tonality, mark making, colour and form in relation to content/subject matter. This will include exploration of surface qualities through soft ground etching and line, drawn qualities through hard ground etching.

At the end of the workshop you will have a small edition of prints and have gained knowledge and skills in traditional and experimental approaches to press based print making processes.
