bespoke workshops


I also offer bespoke teaching to meet specific requirements. Please contact me if you would like more information.






Both weekend and evening courses teach the basic principles on steel plates, using liquid hard grounds and acrylic spray grounds to create tonal areas. The plates bite in a copper sulphate and cooking salt solution.


This technique is an effective alternative to traditional etching methods. It offers a wide range of creative options within a much safer working environment for the artist.
