This class is designed for individuals or groups with previous etching experience - including those who have taken our introductory etching workshop. The day sees you create beautiful etchings from a photograph using a range of acid-based techniques.

In this class

Experienced tutor Nick Richards walks you through the photo-etching process, remaining on-hand to provide help and assistance where needed. Using photo emulsion-coated metal and a clear film copy of your image, you will etch your photograph onto plates using a variety of techniques, then use our Rochat presses to finish the pieces.

  • Apply the techniques learned to various artistic styles for experimentation
  • Become an open access Thames-Side member
