Solarplate Etching Workshop

Solarplate Etching Workshop

Presented by Paperworkers Local at PaperworkersLocal

This workshop will introduce techniques used to make photographic and drawn images on a photo-sensitive polymer plate. Attendees will learn how to create a positive transparency image from both a photo file and from a drawing that will be used to make a Solarplate intaglio plate. This process is both relatively easy and non-toxic.

Supplies and a handout will be included but you must bring at least 1 digital photo image file on a thumb drive. If you have a laptop with photoshop or iphoto that would be helpful as well. Lunch will not be provided but we will take a break and students can go to one of Lakeview’s¬†restaurants.¬†
