Electro-etching with Andrew Baldwin and Don Braisby (31/05/18 – 01/06/18)

An integrated safer & less toxic approach to etching

31 May & 1 June 2018
10:00am-4:00pm

This workshop will demonstrate the mark making potential of combining the use of electro-etching and the safer etching processes and techniques developed and taught by Andrew Baldwin. Electro-etching provides a safe, cost effective and creative replacement for acid etching and its alternatives. The combination of the safer etching techniques and electro-etching makes it possible to etch in an open studio and to teach etching in the classroom.

This is a practical hands-on workshop

Workshops aim:

  • Provide a simple introduction to the theory and practice of electro-etching and safer etching.
  • Introduce the equipment needed for electro-etching and plating, how to set it up and use it safely.
  • Creative plate making using safer methods and processes to; lay grounds, aquatint plates, spit bite and sugar lift.
  • Proofing and printing plates in two colours.
  • Introduced participants to electroforming and electrotyping as a potential process in printmaking, jewellery and sculpture.

Objectives:

  • Participants will have gained a working knowledge of electro-etching and the use of safer etching processes and techniques to use in their print making practice.
  • Provide feedback for post-doctoral research.

    Each 2-day workshop aims to give participants knowledge and understanding of a particular process (for example Linocut, Collagraph, Drypoint, Etching or Screenprint) and an opportunity to produce work that shows a creative response to that printmaking technique. You will be taught by one of the Regional Print Centre’s Print Facilitators who have a wealth of printmaking knowledge and understanding.

    All materials and equipment will be provided and participants are encouraged to explore their own subject and creative influences throughout the 2-day workshop.

    Participants can move on to use the open access printmaking facilities available through the Centre to further develop their work. They can also progress to our specialist Visiting Artists Workshops which take place regularly throughout the year.

    Printmaking as a creative activity has a long and distinguished history. It has provided a multi-faceted vehicle for an enormously diverse range of artists, from Durer to Warhol, to explore an equally diverse range of issues and ideas. The qualifications, whilst allowing students to build on prior experience, will require them to face up to new intellectual and material experiences and challenges designed to deliver an independent critical understanding and extended skills base.

    In order to achieve a Level 3 Award in Printmaking students must complete two units

    • Unit 7 Level 3 Principles of Printmaking (compulsory)

    In addition, one optional unit from:

    • Unit 8 Level 3 Intaglio Printmaking
    • Unit 9 Level 3 Relief Printmaking
    • Unit 11 Level 3 Screen Printing

    All units will be internally assessed and moderated against the assessment criteria for those units.

    Students are required to achieve a pass grade in each unit to qualify for an overall qualification grade.

    Participants can also move on to use the open access printmaking facilities available through the Regional Print Centre to further develop their work. They can also progress to specialist visiting Artists Workshops which take place regularly throughout the year.
