Explore a novel more painterly side of etching. Students will depart from tradition to develop a series of different metal plates etched in contemporary mordants such as ferric chloride and saline sulphate by experimenting with the alchemy of the intaglio process; brushing, splashing, dripping, blowing and smudging to produce fascinating and unique prints. Attendees will be introduced to a variety of novel techniques including a permeable soap ground and a painterly aquatint based on photocopier toner. The course will be guided by one-to-one tuition from Sue Corke, Head of Printmaking at the Art Academy. Along time ago she served an apprenticeship in etching and lithography with Edinburgh Printmakers and she has since worked in a number of other notable British and European institutions.

The Art Academy’s printmaking studio is a low-toxic environment with dedicated facilities for professional hands-on learning. Students benefit from the diversity of attendees, taught by internationally renowned printmaker artists at a central location, offering a unique educational experience in London. There is a maximum of eight to ten students per course, materials are included and we advise that you book early to avoid disappointment.
