'First Steps in Etching' Course 19th & 20th September 2015

19th & 20th September 2015

This course will teach you all the basics of hard and soft ground etching, and aquatint, to enable you to create a wide variety of marks and effects.

You will experiment with etching onto zinc and aluminium plates using copper sulphate solution, a less-toxic alternative to traditional nitric acid. The course is led with a hands-on approach from the start, with the opportunity to produce a good number of prints to take away with you. You will also learn about paper, inking and registration techniques. This is a great course for beginners and those who need a refresher, and can act as a lead-in to membership of WYPW so that you can continue to use and develop the techniques you have learnt.

Kate Desforges is a practising artist who specialises in printmaking, and is also technician at WYPW.
