Discover Printmaking: Step-by-Step Etching

Shana James begint

Always wondered what an etching is? Come and learn this traditional technique in a step-by-step class with plenty of tutor guidance. Using a copper plate as your surface, draw an image directly onto the plate and then discover how to create the etching using (non-toxic) acid. Once the image is fixed, learn about how to print onto paper using FAC’s etching press. A great class for beginners or those wishing to work on their own projects and further their skills.
