Accelerate your skills with personalised tuition from Silvi Glattauer. Tuition can be tailored to your personal needs and experience. Silvi specialises in direct to plate photogravure, digital printing and fine art photography.
What is Direct to Plate photopolymer photogravure?
Direct to Plate photopolymer photogravure is a process that uses photopolymer plates in combination with digital photography. The image is transferred 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 method does away with the need for a double exposure and the vacuum frame meaning you will spend less time making plates, and more time making prints!
Working with Silvi offers an insight into the hybridisation of digital techniques with hand made printing processes and covers printmaking techniques, including various ink and paper options. She teaches a non-toxic approach without the use of solvents or acids. This tuition assumes that you have a basic working knowledge of Photoshop and your digital camera.
Fee $450 for one person, $350 for two people (includes one A4 plate, more plates extra).
