As we draw near to the end of the year, our last courses for 2018 are fast approaching.
We offer both beginner courses as well as a refresher course for those with some printmaking experience in etching or linocut. We also welcome artists wishing to expand their practice to traditional printmedia.
The beginners etching course will teach you how to create your image matrix (etching plate) using hard ground (line) and aquatint (tone) processes, as well as how to print your etching plate. We offer a starter kit for beginners including a small copper plate, an etching needle, and a sheet of cotton printmaking paper for R200. (Everything you will need to make your first etching!)
