Are you curious to find out what etching is all about? Or are you looking to try something new, or something creative to do with family or friends? Then contact me to learn more about printmaking! My studio in Fowlers Yard by the banks of the river in central Durham provides access to professional quality printmaking equipment and and materials, and with over 20 years of etching experience , I will share my knowledge and skills in practical hands-on sessions delivered in a welcoming, secure and friendly atmosphere.
The day will start off with an overview of what etching is, followed by more detailed explanations of the techniques that I commonly use, reinforced by step-by-step demonstrations. You'll then try these techiques for yourself, and I'll be there to supervise all day, providing help and support throughout the process.
1 day = 8 hours
or 2 x 4 hours
You will come away with your own copper etching plate, and the resulting print that it creates... and the valuable experience of trying out a versatile and unique art form.
