Explore how you can add extra dimension to your prints by using chine collé with gold leaf and coloured pencils. The chine collé technique adds fine Japanese papers as a layer between the Western paper support and the printed image. We can add gold leaf and coloured pencils to the Japanese paper.

This workshop will show you how to create letterpress printing plates from film negatives and photopolymer plates. The text will be set using Adobe InDesign or PhotoShop software, and then printed onto inkjet film. Photopolymer plates can be made that have both line art and text on the one plate. The plates can be printed in black or in colour. Consider creating a hand-printed Xmas card. Or an ex-libris bookplate.

The photopolymer plate is capable of producing very detailed relief prints which will be printed on western and Japanese papers. Adding mica pigments to your relief prints will add a remarkable shimmer to your work. You can add the powder pigments to part or all of your print. The plate will be inked and then the powder applied. Photopolymer plates are water-washout. No previous printmaking experience required.
