Wed 9.30am dry point & aluminium etching class
NO SPACES AVAILABLE - phone Lizzie to be waitlisted. 0487184059
Get stuck into some dry point or aluminium etching projects over 5 weeks on Wednesday mornings from July 22-Aug 19.
Classes run from 9.30 am - 12.30pm in Lizzie's Armidale studio. Beginners are welcome, as are more experienced printmakers looking for a new project or new techniques.
Print on Lizzie's beautiful Enjay press with luscious French inks and quality art papers. Make your marks directly onto perspex or aluminium plates with dry point techniques, or etch in user-friendly copper sulphate to achieve a range of tones.
We will also explore techniques such as chine collé, hand painting and relief rolls to create a range of monoprints from a single matrix. You create your own original work with step by step guidance and trouble-shooting from Lizzie.
Please note all etching will be aluminium - we will NOT be etching with toxic mordants such as ferric chloride or nitric acid.
$395 fee includes basic materials and equipment - extras available for purchase.
Tea, coffee and bickies provided.
Numbers strictly limited to only 3 to cater for Covid 19 social distancing.
