Workshop Information

Etching is a 500 year old process and still very much used in the world today. Students will learn various techniques during the workshop including, soft ground etching, sugar lift aquatint and will be able to develop prints that they can take home with them to add to their portfolios. They will also learn to consider how works can evoke a powerful emotional, physical and intellectual response that will hopefully inspire them throughout the workshop.
