Etching and Printmaking

Kirsten Baskett leads the daytime Etching and Printmaking sessions. Kirsten is a contemporary printmaker and sculptor who engages with digital technology based on an understanding of traditional methods rather than regarding them as an out-dated medium.

Below is an example of the wonderful prints produced by evening Printmaking students with tutor Anthony Anderson. Anthony paints prints and documents what is happening around him in various media and techniques.

Kirsten and Tony worked together to create innovative projects for etching students to complete at home during spring 2021, when the Kentwood studio was inaccessible due to lockdown. From making prints in a pasta machine to layering prints and create collages, there is no end to Etching and Printmaking  ingenuity at BAEC!
