Easter Holiday: The Etching Week

In this intensive one week printing course, students will study the main intaglio methods of etching, aquatint, sugar lift and dry point. Working on metal is different and inspirational. The emphasis will be on the ability of drawing to expand with renewed strength into an etched surface. By exploring various technical sensitivities, a new layer of visual vocabulary can be added at each stage of the printing process. Students will have the opportunity to investigate multi-plate printing and how to combine the possibilities of etching with block printing techniques such as monoprint, stencil, surface roll and chine collé. The structure of the course will also encourage more personal exploration of the etching methods. Whether the student is creating a body of work or experimenting with the various processes, we will continuously rediscover the qualities of the intaglio medium and the characteristic impact of its determined mark.
