27/05/2016 - 29/05/2016

This workshop is for beginners and Scratchboard enthusiasts.

You will learn this wonderfully effective illustrative technique using sharp knives for etching into a thin layer of white china clay usually covered by black Indian ink.

On Saturday morning you will transfer your image onto the board and learn how to scratch.  You will have all day to work on and finish your design in black and white.

The next day will bring an introduction to adding colour.  You will learn how to add this in layers, whilst continuing to scratch to get a brilliant 3D effect.
