Photopolymer Plus Workshop presented by Mary Pulford
When: Saturday 15th February 2020 from 10am – 4pm.
Where: Bittondi Printmakers Association Inc Studio, Aberfoyle Park. (From Hub Drive, turn into the shopping centre road at the KFC; turn right into the Aberfoyle Park Childcare Centre/Bittondi car park. The studio is the first building through the gate to your left).
Cost: $120 for Bittondi members and $140 for non-members. For non-members this fee includes a 1 year associate membership for Bittondi Printmakers Association Inc.
The Workshop: This one day course offers an introduction to a range of printmaking techniques, which use the intaglio printing process. This will include:
• photopolymer printmaking using drawings with line and tone. Photopolymer (also called solar plate) is a low toxicity method of producing a plate from which you can produce prints similar to a traditional etched plate.
• Cardboard drypoint – a simple way of creating an intaglio plate.
• Acrylic drypoint – another technique for creating an intaglio plate.
• Gelliplate – an introduction to creating and printing from gelatin plates.
What to bring: Ideas, images or drawings. The subject matter is up to you, and the size we will be working on will be about 10cm x 10cm. You can use the same image for each technique. An apron/smock/old clothes are recommended, as printmaking can be messy. Shoes must be worn. Please bring your lunch (Bittondi has fridge, kettle and microwave if you need, and there is a shopping centre next to the studio). All other materials and morning/afternoon tea are provided.
