On this course over four evenings you will learn how to make an etching, including how to prepare the plate, add hard and soft grounds, and different ways of drawing into the grounds. You will have a chance to experiment with aquatint, and add texture and tone to your plate. There will be time to print in black and white and try out inking in colour. You will look at artists' who worked in etching for inspiration and there will be a still life set up to draw from or you can bring your own drawings and photographs to work from. Take our next printmaking course course in February to continue learning about etching and make new plates and images.
