What will you learn?
During this in-depth two-day course, we will cover an introduction to Acrylic Resist Etching.
Line Drawing with hard ground is the basis of creating an etched plate; the fundamental teaching of using a drawn line to produce a composition. This method can be strongly linked to those with a love for drawing and composition, as well as working meticulously and methodically. This technique incorporates the preparation of metal plate, the use of hard ground resist along with etching the line drawing through the resist, before finally cleaning and printing the plate using the intaglio method.
