PRINT - Solar Plate Printmaking

Weekdays during 2015 at Studio in Tring with Sheila de Rosa.

This is a relatively new print process that enables images to be established onto metal plates by exposure to light using sunlight or an ultra violet light source.  The plates are developed by washing in water and can be printed as intaglio or relief prints.  Unlike traditional etching techniques, no acid etching is necessary and no toxic chemicals are used in the plate-making process.  This is a very versatile artistic medium which exploits drawing abilities, computer and graphic skills and gestural mark making.

Maximum in Groups = 4 (groups of 6 only with students stated preference)

Each day runs from 10.00 am—15.30 pm

Cost per head = £65
