Explore this exciting printmaking technique ‘Photo Etching (Photogravure)’ for transferring an image into print media for stunning and dynamic results.
Photo Etching combines the traditional technique of intaglio printmaking (where ink is pushed into scratched, engraved or acid etched marks on a zinc plate) with Photography or Photo-Imaging.
The course is suitable for those new to printmaking, photographers wanting to explore alternative photographic processes, those who wish to re-fresh their printmaking skills and the more advanced student wishing to perfect their techniques and develop their personal work.
How much should I study outside class?
It is recommended that you prepare imagery and materials outside the class, so you can use the time in the studio more fully for printing and technical processing which cannot be done at home. A sketchbook documenting your ideas development, technical notes and research is also recommended.
What equipment do I need?
You need to bring: a sketchbook and some art equipment such as pencils, eraser, a range of brushes, Stanley knife, scissors and apron.
What else do I need to buy? What extra costs are there?
There is a studio fee of £8.50 payable each term to the tutor which covers basic materials, except paper and plates which you pay extra for as you use them. All materials are available to buy in the studio.
