Etching and Intaglio Printmaking | SEPPELTSFIELD
Workshops at Seppeltsfield Estate
In this hands-on workshop, learn how to design, etch and print a hard ground etching using eco-aware etching processes. Under the tutelage of highly-qualified printmaker Hanah Williams, you will be guided through the use of a range of etching resists and learn how to print your plates with an etching press. Experiment with a range of mark-making techniques, create different lines and textures and learn about the alchemy behind intaglio printmaking.
This workshop is suitable for complete beginners. All printmaking tools and materials will be provided; please bring an image to print from (15x20cm) and/or other inspiration or reference, an apron or protective shirt, rubber gloves and a folder or bag to transport your finished prints.
You will take home a collection of prints, an etching plate, etching needle, and the skills to continue etching in your own studio. This workshop is eco-aware, solvent-free and uses the latest research in safer printmaking processes.
