Lino Etching Weekend – May

Lino Etching Weekend – May

Weekend course
Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th May 2018
10 – 4

Join artist and printmaker Jenny Thomas for this innovative course, exploring ways of making relief printed images using a caustic soda paste to etch into lino blocks. Lino etching is a very painterly technique, capable of producing gestural marks, gradations of tone, and texture. It can also be combined with traditional cutting methods using lino tools.

Caustic soda etches or ‘bites’ into the surface of the lino block to various depths, according to the length of time it remains in contact with the lino block. A wide range of tonal marks can be created, from white (negative) to grey (half tone). The lino may also be protected from the caustic etch by the application of a range of materials which will resist the etching process. The resulting areas will print black.
