ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
Printmaking in the sun will introduce to and advance students in using solar plate
printing. Both emboss and intaglio processes will be explored.
Participants will be introduced to ways of manipulating images that are relevant
to them. Images are printed out on a transparent film prior to make them ready
to expose on solar plate. This is an opportunity to try something different and
produce a range of results and you will be encouraged to experiment.
Individual research strands will be encouraged in this workshop, making it
suitable for beginners to advanced printmakers. This will endeavor to encourage
linking personal ideas with practice, while considering how art might
communicate to a viewer. On the final day each participant will have a one–on–
one session with the tutor as an opportunity to discuss and format an individual
current or future project.
This course is relevant to people who are interested in process and also to artists
working in other media who are interested in extending their current art practice
through the graphic surprise of printmaking.
