Beginner students will explore intaglio printmaking techniques using aluminium, a cheap and effective metal for intaglio printmaking. Students will be taken through the various methods of intaglio printmaking from dry point, hard ground, soft ground and aquatint. As aluminium is inexpensive compared to copper much experimentation can be done in order to understand the effects of the different processes. Students will also be shown copper and zinc as they develop along with how different inks and papers greatly affect the outcome of a print.
Later on in the term, the students will work with different printmaking disciplines including aquatint and monoprint.
First aluminium plate and inks are provided. Further plates and papers are available from Lavender Hill Colours.
Open Studio Sessions:
The studio is open on Monday evenings at 18.30-21.30, where you can come in and enjoy the facilities on your own with technical assistance from our Etching & Printmaking tutor. For more information click here.
Recommended Further Studies:
We encourage students to compliment their studies by taking the time to visit exhibitions and practice sketching in museums. In addition, the Studios host a range of events throughout the term aimed at enhancing the artist’s understanding of their craft and the tradition that they are working within.
