Etching Weekend – April - Final call

Final call for places

Sat 27 & Sun 28 April
£135 - Weekend course

10.30 - 4.30

Tutor: Kate Desforges

This course is all about learning the basics of etching. You will learn how to use hard ground, soft ground and aquatint to enable you to create a wide variety of marks and effects.

You will be etching zinc 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 learned.
