Introduction to Printmaking with Photopolymer Plates / Solarplate
This one day workshop will introduce participants to a new form of printmaking for artists. Printmaking with photopolymer plates or solarplate is simple, safe, and versatile whereby an artwork, made on transparent material, is placed in close contact with a light sensitive plate. The plate is then exposed to sunlight or an artificial source of UV light and developed in tap water. The method is easy to learn - previous knowledge and experience of printmaking processes and materials is not essential.
Susie Turner, is a professional artist-printmaker who regularly delivers talks and demonstrations about traditional and contemporary methods of fine art printmaking.
