Thursday 30th July to Friday 31st July

You will learn to select suitable images; use etching tools to create your image on an etching plate; learn the chine colle technique and discover how you can express your own style through mark making, use of texture, colour choice and composition.You will be able to create prints working from your own imagery - drawings/photographs/magazines/sketch books. I will offer step by step guidance, with visual presentation and demonstrations. We will be exploring many techniques and there will be advice on how to edition and mount your work. I will bring along all materials and equipment needed, however printmaking can get a little messy so it's a good idea to bring along an apron and any specific papers or surfaces that you would like to print on.
There will be a materials cost of £10 per student.
