During this short course, you will learn to master an innovative printmaking technique which bridges the gaps between photography, drawing and printmaking – exposing hand-drawn and/or digital positives to photosensitive plates. You will develop a series of photopolymer etching plates throughout the week, guided by our experienced tutor. The intaglio prints exhibit rich velvet blacks with a wide and continuous tonal range, sensitive to the original expression of the artist.
The studio is a low-toxic environment with dedicated printmaking facilities for professional hands-on learning; ideal for a study week abroad, to develop a body of work for a portfolio or an opportunity to learn a new creative skill. There is a maximum of ten students per course, materials are included and we advise that you book early to avoid disappointment.
On completion of this course you will be eligible for a free Open Access session (noting that UV equipment cannot be used during Open Access) to continue editioning your work.
