Explore a more painterly side of etching. Students will depart from tradition to develop a series of zinc plates etched in saline sulphate by experimenting with the alchemy of the intaglio process; brushing, splashing, dripping, blowing and smudging to produce fascinating and unique prints. Attendees will be introduced to a variety of novel etching and printing techniques including painterly spit-bite aquatint.
