COPPER ETCH

Tutor: Penny Brewill
Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st October
10.00 AM—4.00 PM 6 places

Intaglio printing means 'in the lines'. The artist draws with a needle onto a copper plate that has been covered with acid resistant wax. When the plate is immersed in acid, the bare metal exposed by the lines of the drawing is eroded. Once the etching process has been completed the plates are inked and run through the printing press.

PHOTO INTAGLIO

Tutor: Jill McKeown
Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th November
10.00 AM—4.00 PM - 6 places

A piece of original artwork (photograph, drawing, collage) is reproduced onto transparent or translucent film or paper and then exposed onto a light sensitive plate. The emulsion on the plate hardens where it is exposed and the softer areas are eaten away and will become the recesses which will hold the ink. Participants should bring a photographic or hand drawn image from which their plate will be prepared.
