Introduction to Photopolymer Printmaking
This versatile technique is perfect for photographers interested in expanding their options for photographic expression. The wonderfully-easy-to-use photosensitive (photopolymer) plates allow artists to create a distinct, handmade look with their photographic prints. Participants will learn to manipulate their images on Photoshop, how to expose them onto the photosensitive plates and finally, techniques for inking and printing rich and detailed images.
Photogravure was introduced in the 1800's as a way to produce photographic prints and has been revived with the availability of non-toxic photopolymer plates. This class is great for experienced and beginning printmakers alike!
Cost: $240 + tax -- includes inks, materials and one sheet of 22” x 30” BFK paper (participants may purchase additional printmaking paper if desired)
