Photopolymer Gravure Workshop
August 28, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$175
Learn the art of photopolymer gravure printing from visual artist and Director of Light Art Space, Karen Hymer. In this one-day workshop participants will create 4 x 5 gravure etching prints from their photographs. Using light-sensitive steel-backed Solarplates, you will experience how this environmentally friendly process translates photographic detail into ink on paper with unparalleled beauty.
No prior experience with printmaking is required. All necessary aspects of printmaking will be discussed including choosing inks, papers, and wiping material. Wiping and inking techniques will be covered. Be prepared to marvel at the way your photograph is transformed through ink on paper.
The making of digital positives will be discussed, but for the workshop itself, you will send digital image files to be made into a digital positive prior to the workshop. An email with details will be provided once you are registered.
All materials for this workshop are included in the registration fee.
