Join artist Nicci Haynes in this weekend workshop exploring Etching.
This workshop is a great introduction to the rich and expressive medium of etching. Etching is a medium with endless possibilities where an image is scratched, drawn or painted onto a metal plate and etched to produce a range of marks from delicate lines to painterly gesture. Ink is applied to the plate and the print is taken by placing dampened paper onto the plate and passing both through a press.
In this class you will learn how to prepare plates, use a variety of mark making techniques, etch it and print using the intaglio presses. This class will use Zinc plates. Suitable for beginners + intermediate.
