    Introduction to hard ground etching with Sharon Loddey. 

    During this one day workshop we will work in a zinc plate to produce a small edition of prints.

    Etching is an intaglio printmaking process.

    Traditionally the hard ground yields a pen-like line associated with etchings. The longer the hard ground plate is exposed to the acid, the deeper and wider the etching.
