Six Week Etching Course: Tuesday evenings, 18th-25th April, 2nd - 23rd May & Saturday 27th May 2017

295.00

Tutors:  Clare Henderson and Niamh Flanagan

Dates:  Tuesday 18th, 25th April & 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd May, 6pm to 8.30pm ; Saturday 27th May 2017, 10am to 4pm.

Students will be introduced to basic printmaking practice and will develop these skills over the duration of the course. We will begin the course by introducing students to 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.

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.
