ETCHING – City & Guilds of London Art School

TCDT Tutor, Laura Clarke, graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Fine Art Printmaking in 2010. In 2012 she was made a Fellow of the Royal Academy Schools.

Etching is a 500 year old process and still very much used in the world today. Students will learn various techniques during the workshop including, soft ground etching, sugar lift aquatint and will be able to develop prints that they can take home with them to add to their portfolios.  They will also learn to consider how works can evoke a powerful emotional, physical and intellectual response that will hopefully inspire then throughout the workshop


Workshops will run on the following Saturdays: 14th October; 21st October; 4th November; 11th November; 18th November; 25th November.

(You must be able to attend all Workshops).
