2-Day Etching Weekend for Intermediate Students: Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th June 2017

170.00

with Niamh Flanagan & Clare Henderson

Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th June 2017, 10-4pm

For Intermediate Students only

This two-day etching workshop is only suitable for anyone who has previously attended an etching course at Graphic Studio Dublin or equivalent..

Students will be able to use a series of printmaking methods, creating a line on a copper plate (hard ground and soft ground) and creating tone on a plate (aquatint). As the course develops students can also employ techniques such as sugar lift and spit bite to work further into the image on their plates.

It is also a great opportunity to proof, edition or finish plates from a previous Graphic Studio Dublin course, and to learn about colour mixing, printing techniques (eg. roll ups and chine colle), paper handling and flattening.



Materials:
As students will be working from their own ideas, it is important to bring a drawing or painting as source material. If you do not usually draw or paint, please bring other source material, like a tracing of a drawing or some photographs or images you like to help us understand what kind of image you would like to make. The more source material you bring with you, the better!

Students will be provided with a start-up supply of copper, paper and inks. Safety goggles and masks are also provided. Students will need to purchase an etching needle, which can be bought at the studio or Kennedy's art supply shop on Harcourt St.

It is also necessary to bring:
- apron
- pencils, pens and paintbrushes
- a notebook

Please note there is a minimum requirement of 5 participants, if not reached course is subject to cancellation. A full refund will be issued in this event.
