This will be an opportunity to expand and develop on skills previously covered at Beginners Level, with a focus on developing multi-plate, colour techniques and overlays for more complex colour printing. It is suitable for those who would like to gain a more in-depth understanding of techniques and processes while improving their basic skills and confidence. Fundamentals of the intaglio process will be covered including drypoint, various intaglio processes including hardground, softground, aquatint, chine colle, surface roll ups, the transfer of drawings to the plate, registration methods as well as the off-set method of transferring the original plate image to subsequent plates. Multi-plate colour printing will be a focus, allowing for layered and complex work, using Aquatint as well as roll up methods of working.
