Instructor: Hans-Peter Szameit

Time: 09.00 - 16.00, 12.00 - 13.00 Lunch

Price: 10.000 SEK (including VAT and 1000 SEK non-refundable deposit)

Included: Lunch, "Swedish fika" and materials (listed below)

Learn the basics of the intaglio printing techniques of etching, dry point and aquatint, and use them to create your own etching from a copper plate.  Participants will be guided through the process of etching all the way from the transferring the initial drawing to the copper plate, etching and inking the plate, to pulling the final print through the press by hand.  Hans-Peter Szameit, co-founder of SARA, will lead the workshop.

We will have 8 places in total available on this workshop. Students will work in our ateliers at SARA Academy where we also will serve the lunch.


Materials are provided.  


Materials included:

  • Copper plate

  • Paper for 20 prints (including proofs)


Additional copper plates and paper may be purchased at the school.

All other tools and materials necessary for etching are provided for use.


If you wish to make an etching from an existing drawing that you have created, please bring it to the workshop.  Note: not all drawings may be suitable given the limited time and scope of the workshop.  Ideally, drawings should be the same size or slightly smaller than the copper plate that is provided.  

Please note that if less than 4 students sign up for the workshop or if the workshop needs to be cancelled due to the pandemic, we will inform students at least one month before start and a full refund will be paid, otherwise the deposit is non-refundable.
