Photopolymer Etching Course

At our latest course, join Helen Ashton as she gives you a beginners guide to Photopolymer Etching. Set over 3 days commencing from the 29th March, this course will give you a valuable insight into all aspects of the practice including; a combination of digital imaging software, UV exposing and traditional etching, as well as being guided through Adobe Photoshop, in order to output and expose A5 digital positives. You will be taught in a low toxic environment allowing you to handle solvents and oil based inks safely.

This specialist course offers a hands on experience of etching photosensitive polymer, a practice which excellently exploits its plates – exhibiting continuous tone, fine detail and rich blacks. This is then added to with the opportunity to develop plates for relief printing, ideal for letterpress and logos.

The course is suitable for beginners and also those with some knowledge of Printmaking that want to expand their practice and incorporate a new skill into their repertoire. You can find out more about the course and book your place here.
