SUGAR-LIFT AND SPIT-BITE ETCHING EXPERIMENTS
An amazing chance to work in a fully equipped professional print studio in an exclusive workshop for all levels using a mix of materials and inks with artist and printmaker Sisetta Zappone!
Class will be socially distanced- we will be observing government guidelines- and class numbers are limited to 6 to keep participants separate
Take a look at our COVID stipulations here
This one day master course will give you the unique opportunity to learn in one of the best known print studios in London and a real artists hub- Artichoke Studios in Brixton, South London.
Places are limited to just six participants to allow for social distancing and full use of equipment so you will receive lots of one to one tuition and advice.
We will focus on learning the techniques of sugar-lift and spit-bite, to create painterly effects on a zing plate
You will make a design on a metal plate and then immerse it in the acid bath following different methods. You will then also ink and print your image using an original old fashioned etching press.
The course does not require any previous experience or existing drawing skills- and is designed to give you an insight into printing practice allowing time and space to experiment and gain confidence on this new skill.
By the end of the course you will be able to:
• Acknowledge and master the technique of sugar-lift and spit-bite etching.
• Recognize and memorize the main tools and materials used in the process.
• Be independent producing your own templates and prints, learning all the steps of the processes.
• Be able to use an etching press and create your printing proofs in a variety of methods
Materials and what you will need:
All materials and resources are included in the course fee.
We recommended you bring your notebook/sketchbook and pen/pencils with you. You will be provided all you need in the classroom.
