Event description

Description

In this 2 Day Workshop, explore and learn the use of photopolymer printing plates in combination with digital photography to create hand made etchings.

This is a completely low-toxic approach. We do not use of solvents or acids. We will transfer the image directly on to the plate with the use of an inkjet printer. Plates are then exposed using UV light, processed with water and printed via an etching press.

This workshop will give you an insight into the hybridisation of digital techniques with hand made printing processes. We will look at printmaking processes, including inks and paper options, setting up the etching press, colour options with chine colle and hand colouring.

NB: This workshop assumes that you have a basic working knowledge of Photoshop and your digital camera.
