Multiplate Photopolymer Course

  • 18 — 25 July 2015

Our intermediate course is perfect for etchers who wish to build on their techniques. This course allows participants to enhance their current skills whilst gaining an in-depth understanding of other etching techniquOn this two days course you will learn to explore the potential of photopolymer to make beautiful multiple plate intaglio images. You will learn to break down your image into layers using hand drawn and photographic techniques and explore mark using dry and liquid drawing materials. We will revise the plate exposure and plate developing. You will have the opportunity to learn registration techniques to help you print multiple plate and multiple colour images that will result in richly layered images. You will learn about using colour, mixing inks and printing a small edition on different paper types.

This is a great course for those of you who have tried photopolymer for intaglio or have some previous etching experience and wish to learn a new intaglio method and improve your skill step-by-step.

We strongly recommend that participants have an excellent understanding of photopolymer before attending this course, or have already completed our introduction to Photopolymer for Intaglio one day course

With the guidance of the course tutor, participants will individually develop their own artwork. There will also be the opportunity to experiment with a range of exciting techniques such as spit-bite, sugar lift and photo-etching. The course will be focused on improving competency and experimenting with new techniques.

Ideal for anyone who wish to improve their skills and develop their own imagery. Participants must have previous experience of etching. Our intermediate course is ideal for all participants who have attended our Introduction to Etching class.

On day one we will look at a range of examples of different etching techniques and individually assess images and decide how to best start developing an etching. Demonstrations of spit bite, sugar lift and photo-etching will be given throughout the day.

On day two we will continue to develop imagery using the techniques learnt on day one, experimenting with colour printing and chine collé.

Participants may also bring in already etched zinc plates that they wish to develop further.

Admission

£193.10 (£154.50 concessions) Including basic materials.

Introduction to Etching 

  • 6 — 7 August 2015
  • 1 — 2 October 2015
  • 3 — 4 December 2015

Etching as a process was developed as a quicker, looser, less labour intensive alternative to engraving. An image could be drawn through a wax ground, and the corrosive action of acid used to etch the lines into the metal plates.

Our Introduction to Etching course allows participants to work on their own zinc plates, experiment first with hard ground and soft ground, then adding tone using aquatint techniques.

Participants will print examples of each of these processes and leave with these prints and their plates.

Admission

£175.50 (£140.40 concessions) Including basic materials.

Photopolymer for Intaglio

  • 14 August 2015 10:30am-5:30pm
  • 9 October 2015 10:30am-5:30pm
  • 20 November 2015 10:30am-5:30pm
  • 15 January 2016 10:30am-5:30pm

This course will explore light-sensitive photopolymer plates, a new fine art printmaking technology.

Artists are now using photopolymer plates to produce a wide range of printed imagery. They handle both text and image very well, and are extremely user-friendly. A drawing or photograph on transparent film, can be placed on the photopolymer plate and exposed to ultraviolet light.

Participants will have the chance to provide their own images (photographic or hand drawn) which they will be shown how to prepare for exposure, they will produce test plates and final plates and will then be shown how to ink up and print these plates. They will leave with both these prints and the plates created during the course.

Admission

£78.90 (£63.10 concessions) Including basic materials.
