The second of a series of evening classes focussing on etching. White Ground is great way to make painterly marks on an etching plate- working with layers of aquatint and white ground you will learn how to achieve interesting tonal watercolour like effects which can be used on their own or with other etching techniques.

On this two evening course you will look at and discuss a range of print examples, then learn how to prepare, draw, etch and print the sugar lift looking at different sugar lift mixtures to get a range of marks. You will apply an aquatint to achieve a range of tones. You will have time to add subsequent layers, or to explore colour printing. 1 x A5 etching plate, ink and paper included.
