Small Rockpool I, Sugarlift & Aquatint, Michelle Avison



The third in our series of Taster Sundays exploring etching. Sugarlift, as used by Picasso, is a painterly way of making marks on an etching plate, which can be etched deeply and/ or made darker through the use of aquatint.

On this one day course you will look at and discuss a range of print examples, then learn how to prepare, draw, etch and print the sugar lift and aquatint. You will have time to add subsequent layers, or to explore colour printing and .

This day course can be taken on it's own, but if you have done either or both of the previous Taster Classes, you can continue to develop your work in etching to achieve a more complex image.
