Tutor: Victoria Browne
Dates: Monday – Friday, 4th – 8th August 2014
Times: 10.00am – 5.00pm
Fee: £305
Level: All Levels

During this five day course, students will learn to master an innovative printmaking technique exposing hand-drawn and hand-painted positives to photosensitive water-etched plates. Often compared to traditional copper plate photogravure, photopolymer printmaking was developed in Denmark in 1989. The intaglio prints exhibit rich velvet blacks with a wide and continuous tonal range, sensitive to the original expression of the artist.

This course is ideal for students with basic etching experience, to develop a series of polymer plates throughout the week, experimenting with ink and material, in order to edition single and multi-colour plates onto Italian archival paper.

The studio is a low-toxic environment with dedicated printmaking facilities for professional hands-on learning. Students benefit from the diversity of attendees, taught by internationally renowned printmaking artists at a central location, offering a unique educational experience in London.
