Introduction to a less toxic method for those new to etching or refreshing their knowledge of this intaglio printmaking process. Over the 2 days we will make several plates and use a variety of mark making techniques to create lines and tones on our plates.
We will be working on Aluminium plates and using open-bite to create aquatints tones, we will look at creative drawing and masking techniques to produce our artworks.
We will experiment with different inking and wiping methods demonstrating how to create a variety of prints from the same plate.
We will have lots of fun playing and experimenting, there will be plenty of resource materials available as starting points for your work and lots of technical support and advise.
Jenny McCabe is a printmaker based in Lancaster where she works from her own studio, she also teaches regularly in printroom’s around the country. Jenny works mainly with intaglio printmaking methods preferring metal plate etchings and collagraph. Her work always starts with drawing and the technical challenge of turning a simple piece of metal or card into a piece of art. She breathes life into the plates with her decisive, quick, and animated mark-making. Wildlife and nature feature heavily in Jenny’s work, using messy gestural lines to capture the energy and movement of the subjects.
All of our workshops take place in our studio at 22 Arun Business Park, Shripney Road, Bognor Regis, PO22 9SX.
Please choose either Saturday/Sunday or Monday/Tuesday
