Course update: Improvers Etching (2-day)
We have introduced a brand new two-day Improvers Etching course which will be on Saturday 1st & Saturday 8th November 2014.
Our improvers course is perfect for beginner etchers who wish to build on their etching techniques. This course allows participants to enhance their current skills whilst gaining an in-depth understanding of other etching techniques and processes.
With the guidance of the course tutor, participants will individually develop their own artwork. There will also be the opportunity to experiment with a range of exciting techniques such as spit-bite, sugar lift and photo-etching. The course will be focused on improving competency, building confidence and experimenting with new techniques.
Ideal for anyone who wishes improve their skills and develop their own imagery. Participants must have previous experience of etching. Our improvers course is ideal for all participants who have attended our Introduction to Etching class.
On day one we will look at a range of examples of different etching techniques and individually assess images and decide how to best start developing an etching. Demonstrations of spit bite, sugar lift and photo-etching will be given through out the day.
On day two we will continue to develop imagery using the techniques learnt on day one, experimenting with colour printing and chine collé.
Participants may also bring in already etched zinc plates that they wish to develop further.
2-day course, 10.30am – 5.30pm
Saturday 1st & Saturday 8th November 2014
