This workshop is for those who enjoy the art of printmaking and would like to learn something new. For the Solarplate method, instruction will be given on making film positives of drawings, ink paintings, images on clear acetate. Students will expose these onto the light sensitive Solarplate in a light unit and then wash out their plate. The result is a nuanced Intaglio plate with line and tone. The plates are inked and printed on an etching press onto damp paper. This is an excellent workshop for drawing students who want to add a new dimension to their work and produce editions of prints. Method and all materials are non-toxic. Minimum 5, Maximum 17.
