Tutor Martyn Grimmer
This very popular afternoon course builds on all the basic intaglio techniques, hard & soft ground, aquatint, spit bite, sugar lift, chine colle, and runs in 10 week blocks. During the course you will be encouraged and guided by the tutor to pursue individual projects .There will also be the opportunity to explore colour printing, using multiple plates in registration, as well as the chance to experiment with photo etching and photo polymer gravure, and saline etching on aluminium.
The overall aim of the course is to enhance and build on those techniques, to advance skill levels and to achieve work of exhibition standard. Teaching methods will be adjusted to suit the level of skill of the individual student with most tuition taking place on a one-to-one basis. Students will be encouraged to develop the confidence to work independently.
All students are required to have prior knowledge/experience of basic etching techniques. There is an option to book a space for the entire 30 weeks at 5% discount.
Martyn has over thirty years of experience as an artist and freelance master printer in multi disciplinary printmaking techniques, and has taught and exhibited widely in the UK and abroad.
