An Introduction to Etching with Mai Osawa
5th November 2018 @ 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM GMT£160
Artist/Illustrator Mai Osawa’s prints are made using various techniques, including: screenprint, drypoint, photopolymer and etching. Since the establishment of our new non-toxic etching facility at the beginning of 2017, Mai has been working almost exclusively in the etching room and is keen to share her skills with those interested in exploring the processes of etching copper and aluminium plates in a safe environment.
This five week morning course is an opportunity to learn the non-toxic processes we employ in the Etching Room using Ferric Chloride and Copper Sulphate with BIG (Baldwins Ink Ground) and a our self-contained spray booth for applying the Aquatint. Suitable for beginners and those who wish to learn to use our new etching facility. All basic materials provided with additional plates/paper available to purchase in the studio.
Mai Osawa joined the Ochre Team as our Intaglio Tutor in January 2018 and oversees all the Intaglio printmaking facilities and courses at the Studio.
