Slade Summer School: Etching I
This course offers an intensive introduction to the methods and materials involved in the traditional and non-toxic techniques of etching, including hard and soft ground intaglio, drypoint, aquatint, sugar lift, spit bite and chine collé, all on copper in ferric. The Slade etching studios have a long tradition of printmaking and as in all disciplines at the Slade, drawing will play a fundamental role within the course. Students will be encouraged and guided in translating their ideas directly on to the plate. The course is suitable for students of all levels.
Included in the course fee is a levy that covers most of the materials necessary for etching, however please note that copper and paper are not provided and will be available to purchase within the class.
