Students will be able to use a series of printmaking methods, creating a line on a copper plate (hard ground and soft ground) and creating tone on a plate (aquatint). As the course develops students can also employ techniques such as sugar lift and spit bite to work further into the image on their plates. It is also a great opportunity to proof, edition or finish plates from a previous Graphic Studio Dublin course, and to learn about colour mixing, printing techniques (eg. roll ups and chine colle), paper handling and flattening.
For Intermediate Students only. This two-day etching workshop is only suitable for anyone who has previously attended an etching course at Graphic Studio Dublin or equivalent.
