About this process
Etching is a means of engraving imagery and mark making into various kinds of metal plates with the purpose of printing the plates. In Western Europe, the process of etching began during the fourteenth century as a way of decorating metal (eg: armour or jewellery) and was not initially seen as a means for printing imagery.
Learn how to plan, etch and print your two-plate copper plate with line drawing and aquatint during this two-day course.
