Mon 18 Jun | 6.30pm – 9pm | £15 | with Jamie Barnes
Etching is a captivating method of making prints which hasn’t changed since it was developed in the 16th Century. Suiting those who like line drawing, this taster session will lead you through the various artistic and technical stages to produce a line etching using the ‘safer’ method of etching on zinc using copper sulphate solution.
The session will start with a brief introduction followed by a demonstration on how to prepare the metal plate for etching. The rest of the session will be hands-on as the whole class is lead through the process of making a line etching from drawing onto the plate to pulling the final plate on the etching press.
By the end of the session you will have made your own small line etching to take home.
