      Etching Basics

      In this one day workshop using zinc plates and copper sulphate participants will learn how to prepare their plates, apply a hard ground and achieve tone using spray paint as an aquatint. By the end of the course everyone should have created a zinc plate with an image and have printed it intaglio ready for framing. Some materials will be provided. Suitable for beginners and those with some experience. NB A further course may be scheduled fwhere participants will be able to extend their knowledge with multiple plate printing, chine colle, stencils and sugar lift. Etching is a rich medium where an image is scratched, drawn or painted onto a metal plate and the image etched into the plate. A range of marks can be created and, after etching, ink is applied to the plate. A print is created by placing dampened paper onto the plate and passing both through a press.
