Explore the versatility of printing with photopolymer plates. Relief and intaglio processes will be covered. This technique offers a safe alternative to etching plates with acids. Create a relief plate from hand-drawn images or you can use found materials such as lace, mesh, or dried plants to create a plate. We will make drawings on drafting film to create intaglio plates. You can use drawings or photographs under the drafting film to make a line and tone drawing with pencils.

During this workshop you will create two plates, one will be processed to print in relief, the other, with different processing will be inked and printed intaglio. You will learn how to ascertain the correct exposure for your plates, and how to process the plates to create durable printing plates. You will also learn how to ink and print onto dampened paper, and a small edition can be made time permitting.

Price of workshop includes all materials.

Enjoy a creative weekend with printmaker Seraphina Martin.

In this hands-on two-day workshop, Seraphina will teach you simple techniques used in solar plate etching. Using UV rays from the sun, solar plate etching is a quick, simple and non-toxic printmaking technique.

You will create an image using drawings, photographs or collage, then photocopy your final composition onto acetate film. This print will be exposed onto a photosensitive photo-polymer plate, ready for printing on the etching press. Viscosity inks on rollers will allow for some exquisite colour variations towards a stunning print portfolio.

Often referred to as painterly printmaking, monotype is a type of print made by drawing or painting with ink on a smooth surface. The image is then transferred to paper using a press. 

Unlike other printmaking techniques the resulting image is a 'one off' that cannot be repeated. Best known for rich tones and spontaneous mark making, monotype is an easy to explore medium.

No previous printmaking experience required.
