WORKSHOP / Photopolymer Photogravure Printmaking: from Photography to Etching

Explore and learn the use of photopolymer printing plates in combination with digital photography to create etchings. Silvi uses a completely non toxic approach without the use of solvents or acids. In this workshop the group will transfer images directly onto the plate with the use of an inkjet printer. Plates are then exposed using UV light, processed with water and finally printed via an etching press. This workshop combines both handmade and digital techniques, offering a unique and engaging creative experience. All equipment and materials are supplied.
