The tutored side is suitable for beginners in etching, or can be for those with some experience in printmaking who want extra tutoring for various reasons. Tutored by long term WSA tutors and highly skilled printmakers Steph McLellan and Janice Meadows.
To work more independently in the print room students will need:
Relief printing – experience and previous tutoring in at least one process. Be confident and safety aware when working with sharp tools – demonstrate good working practice. Have experience printing using a press rather than only hand burnishing.
Intaglio printing – experience and previous tutoring with drypoint and etching. Participants must be familiar with protocols surrounding use of acid for etching and aquatint. They would need to have had experience preparing a metal plate. Understand how to use hard and soft ground. Understand the different solutions used for cleaning plates.
Mono printing – to have had tutoring in at least one other print process and have experience using a printing press rather than only hand burnishing.
Small class numbers ensure you a quality experience.
