About this Event

Etching Using Electro-Etching

Tutor: Don Braisby

Weekend Course

17 - 18 October

10am-6pm

€300

This course explores the principles of electro etching. This recently rediscovered process for making both intaglio and relief printing plates is said to be the least hazardous of all the etching techniques available. Its ability to make painterly and calligraphic marks make it a great alternative to other etching methods. The course introduces the equipment needed for electro-etching and plating, how to set it up and use it safely. Participants learn how to set up their work space, use tools and techniques for creative plate making, prepare materials and ink, and print multiple prints. Participants also gain a working knowledge of electro-etching using electrolysis. Participants finish the course having created a series of prints.
