In our series of evening classes focusing on etching, this class explores sugar lift. Sugar lift is a painterly way of making marks on an etching plate, which can then be etched deeply to create emboss effects and/ or made darker through the use of aquatint.

On this four evening course you will look at and discuss a range of print examples, then learn how to prepare, draw, etch and print sugar lift looking at different sugar lift mixtures to get a range of marks. You will apply a traditional box aquatint and a coarse or hand-shaken aquatint to achieve a range of tones and texture. You will have time to add subsequent layers, or to explore colour printing.
