Copper Plate Etching Workshop

This workshop will introduce you to etching using traditional techniques.

Learn techniques used in traditional etching such as applying hard ground to a copper plate like Norman Lindsay did in the 1920s.

User friendly materials are used in the etching process including a mordant that does not emit harmful fumes and each stage of the etching process is shown and supervised.

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

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 on.

Ticket cost includes all materials needed for the workshop. Lunch is not supplied.
