An Introduction to Etching with Mai Osawa
2nd July 2018 @ 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM BST£160
A five week morning course introducing you to non-toxic etching.
Artist/Illustrator Mai Osawa’s prints are made using various techniques, including: screenprint, drypoint, photopolymer and etching and now leads the Intaglio courses at Ochre Print Studio.
Since the establishment of our non-toxic etching facility in January 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 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.
