Sugar Lift Etching – A Masterclass with Katherine Jones
29th September 2018 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM BST£140
A sugar lift is a way of creating painterly marks on an etching plate using a sugar solution and a paint brush. The areas you paint are a positive mark. It’s a form of etching using aquatint.
If used in conjunction with the more technical processes of etching, this method of working on a plate allows you to incorporate fluid marks and textures rather than just those of lines.
This weekend course will be led by Katherine Jones, a fine art printmaker and painter living and working in Brixton South London. She combines traditional forms of intaglio and relief print namely etching, collagraph and block-print to produce her distinctive images.
Katherine is the recipient of numerous awards and has exhibited widely both internationally and in the UK.
Date: Weekend 29/30 September
Time: 10am to 4pm
Cost: £140 / Members £130
