Solarplate Etching Workshop

June 13, 2016 @ 9:00 am - June 17, 2016 @ 4:00 pm

Tickets Starting at: $795

Instructor: Dan Welden
Monday – Friday 9am – 4pm | June 13 – June 17

Solarplate Etching is an exciting, spontaneous, simple method of making impressions with alternative and safer practices. The method utilizes UV light (the sun) and ordinary tap water instead of traditional grounds and acids, and uses a light-sensitized polymer printing plate. Artists may draw, paint, photograph or do digital manipulations on film, glass or mylar, or paint directly on the Solarplate. We will produce several 8×10 inch images, and may have the option to work larger during this enthusiastic workshop. The Solarplates can be used to produce multiple impressions or can be utilized for monoprinting.

Prerequisite: some printmaking experience recommended, but not required
