This is regarded as the basic module for an initial approach to the main themes of hand printmaking: an introduction to tools and specific materials, preparation of zinc or copper plates from the beveling of the edge to the application of the ground; sketch conception, execution of drawing and their transferral to the plate; introduction to black an white etching and aquatint, including practical work; an introduction to other printmaking techniques (i.e. drypoint, soft ground etching) introduction to printing processes with a hand-operated press and relative exercises. Even those who already have a basic technical grounding or who do not have much time will find that the course provides scope for more in-depht study and individual experimentation.
