Etching is one of cornerstones of printmaking and offers endlessly fascinating possibilities for any artist.

You will be guided through how to prepare your copper plate, apply wax resist for hard and soft ground line etching, the various drawing and mark-making techniques and tools used to draw image and image correction/stopping out using acid resist varnishes prior to etching the plate.

Penny will teach you how to etch your plate safely and will give a explanation of the various solvents, spirits and varnishes used in etching. You’ll also cover inking, wiping and printing your plate and the correct and safe procedures for cleaning up.
