Two Day Zinc Plate Etching with Copper Sulphate with Amanda Donohue

A two day workshop on traditional and modern etching techniques using zinc plates and copper sulphate. Participants will learn how to prepare their plates, apply grounds, transfer a drawing, achieve tone using spray paint as an aquatint and experiment with stencils. By the end of the course everyone should have created a zinc plate with an image and have printed it intaglio ready for framing. Some materials will be provided.
