A brief introduction to etching

Etching is one of the oldest methods of printing still used today. In order to find out a bit more about this technique, we asked Print Studio Manager and Abacus artist Frances Disley to explain the process used in creating an etching print. As well as being the Bluecoat Print Studio Manager, Frances is also a practicing artist, based at The Royal Standard in Liverpool.

This year we are celebrating our 300th anniversary, making us the oldest building in Liverpool’s World Heritage Site, and the UK’s oldest arts centre. As part of this anniversary, we have taken the opportunity to reflect on how the nature of artistic leadership has changed during its lifetime as a centre for the contemporary arts.
