About The Event

This introductory course will teach you how to use environmentally friendly polymer method as a variation of intaglio method. Photopolymer combines digital media, industrial flexographic photosensitive photopolymer plates with traditional etching and inking methods. Through photopolymer you can print your photographs or your drawings with high quality results. UV light is used to transfer the image onto the plate and its development will be done with water. You will be able to match your plate with your original photograph and to print it on the etching press! After the workshop, you will come out with a handful of prints and explore the unique expressive possibilities of this method further. In this course, artists with or without experience in printmaking can participate. Please send confirmation until 30.04. to rita.vargas(a)gmail.com
