In the Depths
Corroded Copper 21 x 38 cm
Electrolytic action on copper
1/2 June 2017
This workshop will teach two etching processes that can be used to etch at home or in a classroom situation, these are saline sulphate and electro-etching.
Both processes have been described as being ‘safe etching’ however in this workshop we will focus on their potential for alternative mark making rather than on their non-toxic credentials. Don Braisby who is teaching the workshop is completing his doctoral thesis on electro-etching.
Non-members £120.00/Members £75.00

Completed table top sculpture (59cm x 16cm). References Jasper Johns Light Bulb series. The apple and pear are floating on a copper base that is an electrotype copy of a piece of rusted iron that I have been saving for making another object in the same series.
