Copper Plate Etching Workshop

This workshop will introduce you to etching using traditional techniques.

Learn how to apply hard ground on copper plate like Norman Lindsay, so you can draw then etch it using user-friendly materials!

This is a nurturing experience where you will be inspired by the venue and its history – even the original press that Rose Lindsay used to print the editions will be the one you use to print your work too.

A better mordant that does not emit harmful fumes will be provided and each stage of the etching process shown and supervised.

After processing your plate, you will be taught how to ink up, to create your own unique prints on specialised etching paper, using different colours and tones.
