Over this six-week course, you will explore a range of etching processes, including dry-point and soft and hard ground etching. You will learn a variety of ‘biting’ and ‘inking-up’ techniques and a number of other print possibilities to enrich your work. You will be supported in exploring and extending your range, whatever your level of experience.

You will need to supply editioning paper (Snowdon 300gsm) and drawing materials which can be purchased from local art shops or online. Other materials can be purchased in the class.
