Six Week Etching Evening Course: Sept - Nov

295.00

Tutors:  Clare Henderson and Niamh Flanagan

Dates: Tuesday 26th September, 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th October, Wednesday 1st November, 6pm to 8.30pm; Saturday 4th November, 10am to 4pm.

Suitable for: Beginners & Intermediate

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, we would prefer you to bring a drawing or painting you have made yourself as source material. The plate size we work on is 15 x 18 cm. Please make drawings to fit this size. 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! Please bring a hard copy image with you, not an image on a device.

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 necessary to bring:
- apron
- pencils, pens and paintbrushes (small paintbrushes for fine work are especially important)
- a notebook

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