Course Information

This technique can produce variations of line and texture within the printed image. From fine detail to heavier marks with a distinctive ‘Bur’, this method is suitable for those who prefer quicker results and for those who enjoy the more physical aspects of printing involved.

This technique is suitable for those who are new to intaglio printmaking as well as those who have some experience of etching previously and may wish to further polish their skills.

All materials and notes are included in the price of this workshop. No previous experience of printmaking is required.
