Event description

Description

This 1 day workshop will introduce you to the 2 basic techniques used for solar plate etching; single and double exposure.

A solar plate (or photopolymer plate) is a steel plate coated with a light sensitive polymer layer. The plate is exposed to uv light (weather permitting using natural sunlight) and washed out in water. This environmentally friendly printmaking technique can be used to produce images that can be printed in both intaglio and relief using hand drawn images, photographs, natural materials, photocopies etc as the starting point to making a plate.
All materials provided.

Suitable for beginners and those with some experience.
