Led by Francisco Garnica
Led by the SPS Studio Manager, this course is aimed at those who are new to intaglio printmaking. You will come away with a strong foundation and confidence to start your own etching practice.
During the first 5 weeks, it will introduce you to a range of processes including drypoint, monotype, monoprint, collagraph and embossing, all without chemicals. The last 5 weeks we will be covering the basic principles of etching, from hard and soft ground to an introduction to aquatint. You will produce a set of plates that can be inked in colour and in combination with each other, in order to explore multiple plate registration techniques.
