Etching Weekend Course
On 20&21 January, OR 9&10 March OR 11&12 May - join us for an etching weekend course.
Etching Weekend Courses provide the perfect introduction to etching, introducing innovative techniques that encourage spontaneous and diverse methods of mark-making.
Work directly onto metal plates, developing images through various hand applied techniques. Using new safer acid resists makes etching a much healthier process, using neither dangerous acids nor solvents.
During the course participants will work on two etching plates, one copper and one zinc, introducing them to both of the metals and the mordants most commonly used at Edinburgh Printmakers. Participants will produce two images over the course (one on each metal) making use of a combination of techniques in each plate. The size of the plates will be 152 x 203mm (6 X 8 inches)
