Aluminium Etching – Etching with metal plates and intaglio printmaking is different, and traditional dimension of printmaking. This workshop looks at a non-toxic approach to metal plate etching.

I also offer private tuition and Workshop Gift Vouchers.

 

My printmaking work covers lino printing, metal and solar plate etching, monotype, collagraph and the occasional digital inclusion; exploring traditional and new printmaking media. I also work with letterpress, where I like to explore my love of type and the fading craft of hand setting lead type then inking the press to manually print the words.

My subject matter is generally taken from the natural environment, with some surprises from the urban landscape. In a culture of haste and automation, I find that the natural environment encourages me to be still and present.
