Etching & Drypoint Classes

We’ve lined up some new workshops around the intaglio techniques used at Medway Fine Printmakers. A five hour / two morning drypoint class with Liz Kelleher begins in June, and in July we have a two-day introduction to etching with Heather Haythornthwaite where you can use non-toxic metal salt solutions to bite metal plates (instead of more hazardous traditional acids), working with hard and soft grounds to etch and print zinc plates.

If you have experience of intaglio printing, but could use some help improving your technique, come along to Jane Furst’s sessions held on the last Wednesday of each month 1-4pm, and other Wednesdays by request. Jane can give one-to-one advice, demonstrate techniques, and will have her collection of etching tools on hand for use in these sessions. Price is £10 (£8 concessions) on top of the open access session fee.

In July we will be joined by artist in residence Liz Miller, who will be working on her ‘Classics on Vinyl’ series combining music and visual art in a photopolymer etching project investigating repetitive patterns in music. Liz will be running a special weekend photopolymer etching workshop for us in September, to accompany our group exhibition at Rochester Art Gallery. The course will be subsidised by Medway Arts Team and will cost £60 for the two days.
