Electro-Etching Workshop June 2018

Electro-etching with Andrew Baldwin and Don Braisby

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.
