Description


This workshop has now sold out. If you would like to be added to the waiting list please email the tutor on amanda@terrarossa.biz.
In this one day workshop using zinc plates and copper sulphate participants will learn how to prepare their plates, apply a hard ground and add colour using chine colle. By the end of the course everyone should have created a zinc plate with an image and have printed it intaglio ready for framing. Suitable for beginners and those with some experience.

Most materials will be provided but you will need to provide your own zinc plate and printing paper.

NB A further course may be scheduled fwhere participants will be able to extend their knowledge with multiple plate printing, stencils, open bite and soft ground.

Etching is a rich medium where an image is scratched, drawn or painted onto a metal plate and the image etched into the plate. A range of marks can be created and, after etching, ink is applied to the plate. A print is created by placing dampened paper onto the plate and passing both through a press.
