  1. Wow!! These classes all sound like huge fun! I would love to do them all, but sadly can’t commit due to possible work coming up in the new year. As the weekend courses would be easier for me to commit to, I can’t decide between Photo Intaglio, Collograph and etching copper, maybe I’ll do all of them! Thank you. D 😀

  2. Hi Bill,

    I’d like to join the etching class on the weekend of the 2nd April 2022 if there’s a place still available?
