3-week class. Prior printmaking experience not necessary, those with printmaking experience will be pushed into unfamiliar territory. Each person will be supplied with one Solarplate, printing ink, a limited amount of paper, and other basic supplies.

Using environmentally safe techniques and materials with a UV exposure unit and water, create a Solarplate etching without the traditional toxic acids, solvents and grounds. Learn how to process, develop, ink, and print the plate. Learn to create 6”x8” intaglio or relief prints from preparatory drawings, B+W photographic transparencies or scanned objects (created prior to class).
