    What you'll learn

    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.

    Now you can

    • Apply the techniques learned to various artistic styles for experimentation
    • Become an open access Thames-Side member
    • Create personalized gifts for friends and family using photo etching techniques


    Materials are provided throughout the workshop and the pieces you create with us are yours to keep.

    Due to the fine detailing made possible through photo etching, the application is used to create circuit-boards and other small technological units.
