Tutor: Victoria Browne
Dates: Thursdays, 23rd April – 25th June 2015

This course focuses on line, texture and tone through etching; a traditional drawing approach to print, that is still employed by contemporary artists today. Using a saline sulphate mordent, students learn to combine hard ground etching, soft ground etching and aquatint to realise a series of print editions. Guided by one-to-one tutoring from Victoria Browne, students will expand their knowledge and develop their self-led project.
The studio is a low-toxic environment with dedicated printmaking facilities for professional hands‐on learning. Materials are not included in the course and require additional costs. Students benefit from the diversity of attendees, taught by internationally renowned printmaking artists at a central location, offering a unique educational experience in London.
