This one day course offers an introduction to photopolymer printmaking. 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. Each participant will design and draw one 10cm x 15cm photopolymer plate. Additional plates will be available at about $9 each. Each participant will print their plate using the intaglio method, and a small edition of prints will be produced. All paper, inks and materials will be provided during the workshop. Hand colour and chine colle will also be discussed. This workshop will include a print exchange if time permits.
What to bring: Ideas or images suitable for line and tone drawings. The subject matter is up to you – the size we will be working with is 10 x 15cm. An apron / smock / old clothes are recommended, as printmaking can be messy. Shoes must be worn.
