This very popular one day workshop will concentrate on the sugar lift aquatint process, a techniques exploited and mastered by Picasso. The whole process will be explored from plate preparation, drawinging onto and etching the copper and then printing the image on paper. The emphasis will be on achieving results and working with good professional studio practice.
Jason Hicklin was born in Wolverhampton in 1966 and studied at St. Martins College of Art where he was a student of the renowned printmaker Norman Ackroyd. After and completing a postgraduate course at the Central School of Art in 1991, Hicklin combined working as Ackroyd’s studio assistant and editioner with producing his own work.
Hicklin’s paintings and etchings capture the feel of the weather and its effect on the landscape.. His work is charged with an atmosphere born of an intimate knowledge of the landscape and a direct physical experience of its changing moods.
