2 Day Workshop
Explore and learn the use of photopolymer printing plates in combination with digital photography to create Photogravure etchings. This is a completely non-toxic approach without the use of solvents, or acids.
This workshop will teach you the ‘Direct to Plate’ system. We 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.
We do not use films for making plates, which simplifies the process immensely. Giving you more time to make prints!
This workshop will give you an insight into the hybridisation of digital techniques with the hand made print. We will look at printmaking techniques, including inks and paper options, setting up the etching press, color options with roll ups and digital chine colle.
