Introduction to Etching Course

2 day course – 10.30am – 5.30pm

Etching as a process was developed as a quicker, looser, less labour intensive alternative to engraving.  An image could be drawn through a wax ground, and the corrosive action of acid used to etch the lines into the metal plates. Our Introduction to Etching course allows participants to work on their own zinc plates, experiment first with hard ground and soft ground, then adding tone using aquatint techniques.
Participants will print examples of each of these processes and leave with these prints and their plates.
