Create garden inspired prints
In this workshop you will take drawings from the garden/bush/landscape and transform them into intaglio prints using water-washable photopolymer plates. Bring a range of your drawings or photographs to the workshop as a basis for your printmaking.
Using a graphite pencil or felt-tipped pigment pen you will create a drawing on drafting film which is then exposed onto a photopolymer plate in sunlight or using a UV exposure unit. The plate is washed out in tap water, dried and hardened, and then printed onto dampened paper to produce a beautiful intaglio print.
All materials provided. Information about what to bring will be sent to registered participants.
