Multi Plate Etching Masterclass with Bronwen Sleigh


Bronwen will introduce the etching processes which is integral to her own practice. The course covers the process of layering colour images in etching as well as line drawing on copper plates using hard ground and adding tone through aquatint. Drawing inspired by architecture is an important element of Bronwen's approach, this course encourages drawing with line from a subject matter that is relevant to you. Working directly on copper plates, learn how to make two corresponding plates and print them in perfect register.

This etching weekend course provides the perfect opportunity to advance your etching skills and techniques. For people with some previous experience in etching, adding a second plate adds a number of creative possibilities and this weekend gives you the time to learn how. During the course participants will work on two copper etching plates, and the mordants most commonly used at Edinburgh Printmakers. Participants will produce one colour image during the course, learning essential skills of registration. The size of the plates will be 152 x 203mm (6 X 8 inches)
