Etching Workshop

This method of printmaking uses an acid to cut an image made up of lines, shapes, patterns, textures and tones in to the surface of a metal plate. You will be looking at a number of techniques within this medium. You will produce a copper plate etching, for which you will learn how to prep your plate, apply a hard ground and how to create a hand-drawn image on to the plate. You will look at how aquatints can be used to create tonal areas and the use of acid to etch your plates. You will look at specialist printmaking papers and how to ink up and print your etching plates.
