Tutor: Rob White

Location: In the studio

New 4 weekly printmaking class on Monday evenings focussing on etching techniques. In this first class, learn how to work with hard ground on an etching plate, including how to build tone and pattern through markmaking, make corrections, additions and re-etch the plate. Also explore different inks and learn how wiping the plate correctly can improve the resulting image.

This course is ideal for printmakers looking to expand their repertoire and wanting to learn more about how hard hard ground can be used in different ways, but it can equally be a fun starting point to learn a new printmaking technique. Students who have attended this course can become members and join in with our studio workshop sessions to carry on their work in hard ground at a 10% discount for the first 5 sessions booked.

Look out for the next course in the series, Soft Ground, starting on 1 November.
