Create a stunning portfolio of vibrant colour etchings in this hands-on 2-day workshop. Solar Plate etching is a quick, simple and non-toxic alternative to the traditional etching process. Use the sun and water instead of acids and solvents to etch the plate with remarkable results. Through lectures, demonstrations and practical exercises, this course will guide participants through this printmaking process. Be inspired as you transform your existing drawings, paintings or photographs into imaginative fine art prints, which will be printed in a variety of colours on state of the art paper.
