Etching and Printmaking Courses

 

Course Overview

The course focuses on the fundamentals of intaglio printmaking, using modern non-toxic and safe alternatives to traditional methods.

Course content

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, the students will work with different printmaking disciplines including aquatint and monoprint.

Materials:

First aluminium plate and inks are provided. Further plates and papers are available from Lavender Hill Colours.
