Solar plate etching, a polymer printing process, is a non-toxic, chemical-free process to easily transfer photos or drawings onto a zinc plate that can then be printed multiple times using the intaglio inking method. During this two day workshop we will be making two plates. One using a photographic transparency and one using a drawing or painting on mylar. We will be using the sun to print our plates or an exposure box if the sun isn’t available. Day two we will prep the plates for printing and print the intaglio plates using black and white and then some colour.
The course runs September 15 AND 16 from 10am to 4pm. Costs are $225 for GZP members and $245 for non-members. There is also a $20 materials fee for 2 solar plates. Otherwise, most materials included.
