Print relief and intaglio photpolymer plates onto brass and copper foils and gold and copper leaf. Make a relief photopolymer plate using a film negative, and print it with impression onto brass and copper foil, and experiment with hand-embossing into foils. Then make a photopolymer plate for intaglio printing, and use metal leaf on Japanese paper and metallic tissues to add a reflective surface behind your image.

Create background colours which are inkjet printed onto Japanese paper and used in conjunction with a photopolymer plate. You need a good working knowledge of Adobe Photoshop and some previous printmaking experience would be advisable. The printed Japanese paper is used as a chine collé layer with the inked photopolymer plate. A challenging workshop, but the possibilities are amazing. Left: Lyn Nicholls  Right: Dianne Longley

This workshop reveals the wonders of cardboard drypoint and photopolymer printmaking — simple printmaking processes which can be translated to the classroom. A relatively new type of drypoint cardboard plate will be used that can be inscribed with lines of different qualities. Areas of the plate surface can be cut and removed to expose dark velvety areas when inked and printed. Textures can be created by using the etching press to impress different materials into the surface of the cardboard plate. On day two drawings or digital files will be used to create a photopolymer plate, which can be printed intaglio and in relief as well. Left: Cathy Donovan  Right: Dianne Longley
