COPPER PLATE GRAVURE



2,3,4 August, 10.00-17.00.
This is the method that Fox Talbot pioneered and was brought to market by Klic in the 1880s.
We will produce aquatinted copper plates onto which a carbon image will be made.
An etch will then be made through the carbon image to produce the printing plate from which an image can be made.
We will show a simplified method of judging the rate of etch which Terry King developed at Hands-On Pictures.
Cost £400
There will be a £15 charge for materials.
