Print to the People: Etching Facilities update!!!!

16 Sep

We have been working hard over the summer to sort out our etching facilities at Print to the People! This Wednesday I spent time doing a test etching to check that it’s all in working order before the Introduction to Etching course on the 8th of October (http://printtothepeople.com/courses)

Up until now, there has been no where for people to access etching in Norwich and it’s been my dream since finishing university in 2010 to set up facilities for graduates, artists and enthusiasts to continue experimenting with this traditional printmaking technique.

For now, we will mainly be working with ferric chloride and copper and the maximum plate size that will fit in the etching tank is A3, however we do have larger trays as well.  We are also focussing on hard ground and soft ground as we are a bit limited for space, but we have an aquatint box in storage so watch this space!!!

If you interested in trying this technique check out the course info on the link above, or if you or some one you know has experience in etching then spread the word as you will be able to book an induction via intaglio@printtothepeople.com from October!
