Courses in August and September
Intro to Etching with a British Twist
$50 for supplies
Course description : This course will give you an introduction to etching with Zinc using a hard ball ground. The course is led by Maya U Schueller-Elmes, a printmaker from London, UK with over 10 years printmaking and teaching experience. She will bring the skills she has learnt through community arts engagement and teaching experience gained through being part of the printmaking technician team at London’s Central St Martin’s school of art to this course – introducing students to a set of techniques which are more traditionally used in the UK. As a result of this course, you will gain a good understanding of using zinc plates and hard ground etching techniques – from preparing the plate, applying hard ball ground, making marks, and using nitric acid safely through to preparing your paper and pulling your print using an etching press.
Skill level: beginner / refresher / suitable for printmakers at any level who are curious about use of hard ball ground as an alternative to liquid hard ground.
