About

For one week in the summer we will be closing the studio to our regular artists and welcoming in students. Learning in small groups of 6, students will have plenty of opportunity to receive one to one support as they learn their craft and begin to make new work.

Learn Etching

Develop a personal project using traditional etching techniques under expert guidance. This intensive week long course offers an increased understanding of process and promotes experimentation in a purposeful, friendly workshop setting.

A full range of techniques will be available: hard ground, soft ground, soap ground, and a range of aquatint techniques that include spit bite, sugar lift and burnishing.

You will also develop an understanding of how artists have used this process both historically and in current practice and from this start to identify techniques which might best suit your temperament, personal strengths and interests.

This course is perfect for those with some prior etching or printmaking experience.
