Experience a safe etching process in a non-toxic environment using solarplates: steel backed, photopolymer-covered plates, processed with UV light and water. Images will be generated from many sources such as photographs, drawings, collages or working directly on the plate itself. The actual process is simple and easy, but the variations of approaches are a major part of the class experience and suitable for many stylistic approaches. Participants will then use Akua and Charbonnel washable inks to create editions or monoprints, exploring chine-colle, a la poupee and viscosity techniques. Suitable for all levels of experience.
