Introduction to etching metal plates for print - with Tim Le Breuilly
Etching is traditionally the process of using strong acid or mordant to cut into the unprotected parts of a metal surface to create a design in intaglio (incised) in the metal.
Learn how to etch your own Aluminium plate which can then be used to print from, with this safe, non-toxic process (we won't be using acid). You will use a range of mark making techniques to create resists, these act like stencils for the etchant. By building these marks up over several layers you can produce a very textural plate.
We'll be working outside but under cover in the beautiful setting of the Francis Le Suer Centre on the 5 mile road.
The Good Stone will be doing a 'Pop Up' at the venue on Saturday 23rd June; serving freshly made wood fired Pizzas. Also exclusively; they’ll be showcasing Pizzas from the Sea! A special Climavore Pizza, part of The Morning Boat's culinary intervention.
