It was lovely to have Artist Katherine Jones teaching at Ochre Print Studio again.
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.
Katherine is 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. She is the recipient of numerous awards and has exhibited widely both internationally and in the UK.
Here are some of the lovely prints produced over the weekend:
