Traditional Etching

with Ann d’Arcy Hughes

and Hebe Vernon-Morris

In the 16th Century, Printmakers began to develop this Intaglio technique to create intricate, linear, tonal, textured and semi-embossed prints. Using Zinc and Steel, we continue in this tradition, teaching techniques that connect us to the history of the medium, providing an opportunity to explore:

Once the Ground or Aquatint has been applied to the plate and the image created, the line or texture is bitten into the metal using Nitric acid. Ink is then pushed into the lines and texture of the image, before printing using the manual Rochat press or electric Etching press.

Suitable for beginners and experienced artists. Small class size – 4 – 6 people.
Courses are relatively short so more than one course will be needed to develop imagery using some of the more advanced techniques.
