Create stunning images in relief
Join Dianne Longley, expert printmaker for this hands-on workshop and learn how to create beautiful hand-crafted relief prints. No previous experience necessary.
Discover the amazing detail possible in the photopolymer relief printing plate.
Bring your own drawings and photographs to use as source material. Your hand-drawn images on double matt drafting film will be used to create the relief printing plate. You’ll draw with opaque pens, posca pens, or paint with gouache and scratch back into the dried paint to create interesting effects.
Each drawing is then placed onto the plate and exposed to sunlight or a UV light unit. The plate is then washed out in tap water, dried and hardened.
We will print each plate onto Japanese and Western fine art papers.
