ETCHING WORKSHOP: AQUATINT & SPITBITE – Master Print Making with Sisetta Zappone

March 12 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm


An amazing chance to work in a fully equipped professional print studio in an exclusive aquatint print making workshop with artist and printmaker Sisetta Zappone!

This workshop is suitable for both beginners looking for a new playful approach to a traditional technique and for experienced printmakers looking to develop creative methods and skills in their etching practice. You will be looking into the artwork of old and new masters on this technique (Goya, Southerland) –

About spit-bite and aquatint:
Spit-bite is a particular technique which creates organic and delicate, watercolour like washes on your etching plate. As you can imagine from its name, spit was really used as a medium!!! Obviously that’s no longer the case! Come discover this and many other methods to transform metal in a vibrant surface with master printmaker Sisetta Zappone at artichoke, one of the most active prints hub in London.

Learn how to print using the etching press and unleash your creativity. No previous experience is required and all materials are included in the course fee. Bring along your sketchbook for reference and give a new twist to your drawings –

Please note there is not kitchen facilities in the studio, but nearby there are shops and cafes

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, but if you have previous experience in printmaking and know your favourite materials feel welcome to bring those along (inks/paper/ old metal plates you have made), and also with some samples of your former work.
