Make a relief photopolymer plate and print it onto brass and/or copper foil. From a drawing with strong contrast we will make a film negative. Your drawing will be scanned and inverted and printed onto a transparency film. The photopolymer plate can be exposed in a UV exposure unit or in a contact frame in sunlight. Once the plate/s is washed out, dried and post-exposed you can ink it and print onto paper, then copper and brass foil shim. It takes a little experimentation to get the pressure right, and obtain your intended level of impression.
This is an intermediate workshop and is offered as a 1-day workshop for 2, 3 or 4 participants.
Fee includes gst, a light lunch (vegetarian options) and materials kit of 2 x A6 Printight KM95 photopolymer plates, test plate, brass and copper shim, Japanese paper, printmaking paper usually Somerset, and general printmaking materials.
