ETCHING ON ZINC WITH COLOUR EXPERMENTS – PRINT MAKING ONE DAY WORKSHOP
November 6 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm£160.00
An amazing chance to work in a fully equipped professional print studio in an exclusive workshop with artist and printmaker Sisetta Zappone!
Join Sisetta for a day of printmaking for all levels of ability exploring traditional etching techniques
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 five participants to allow for social distancing and full use of equipment so you will receive lots of one to one tuition and advice. This course is suitable for both beginners looking to learn a traditional technique and for experienced printmakers looking to develop creative methods and skills in their practice. You will take your plates and prints home.
We will focus on learning the techniques of etching, employed by masters as Goya, Blake and Piranesi to create beautiful images. You will make a design on a waxed metal plate and then immerse it in the acid bath. 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.
All materials and resources are included in the course fee.
What you need to bring to the studio
You will be asked to wear a mask at all times, so please bring your own mask, your own bottle of water and your lunch with you)
Always recommended to take your notebook and your sketchbook and pencils with you.
