Photo-etching is a welcome alternative to complicated and sometimes hazardous print processes. Drawings, photographs and collages can be translated easily and quickly into high-quality intaglio prints. The process can be used on it's own, or as an additional technique to use in conjunction with traditional etching processes, making it both a great way to start off with etching, and a valuable additional skill for experienced printmakers.
You will learn the basics of exposing, developing and etching a plate, and be given the tools to play with to enable you to find a way of manipulating the technique to suit your own way of working.
The cost of the course includes all materials.
