If you have a passion for drawing and enjoy exploring the qualities of line, tone and composition then understanding the beautiful intaglio process of etching is for you!

This hands-on course will introduce you to the fundamentals of etching, using zinc plates with copper sulphate solution (a less toxic alternative to traditional nitric acid). Over the duration of the weekend you will have the opportunity to work on several individual pieces and will develop a range of prints to take away with you.
