Etching can be a very tight and rigorous process. This half term course encourages learners to break the traditional rules a little and experiment with making images in a less conventional way. Discover how to use and abuse grounds, solvents and other etching materials in new and unusual ways then adapt and build on the results to create amazing imagery. Understand the importance of etching timings, grounds, tools and papers. Beginners, intermediate and advanced students work and learn together in a friendly, vibrant, well equipped studio environment. Students are welcome to pursue their own printmaking projects assisted by the tutor whose aim is to help everyone gain deeper understanding, greater confidence and full outlet for their creative vision in a wide range of wonderful printmaking processes.
