This course explores painting through etching; an intaglio approach to print, originally utilised by Francesco Goya to combine line and the tone with tonal washes and painterly brush marks, as beautifully demonstrated today by Norman Ackroyd, RA. Using a low toxic saline sulphate mordant, you will learn to paint with sugar and etch both aluminum and zinc plates to realise a series of print editions. Guided by one to one tutoring from Katherine Jones, you will expand your knowledge and develop a 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 self-led editioning projects can be tailored to individual needs.
