PHOTOPOLYMER PLATE AND CHINE-COLLE - Printmaking
with Jeffrey Hirst

Jeffrey will teach Photopolymer Plate (Solar Plates) and Chine-Colle.  Photopolymer Plate (Solar Plates), drypoint and Chine-Colle printmaking is a non-toxic approach towards making and printing intaglio and relief plates. The class will explore both photo-based images and non-photo based images such as drawings to produce plates using an exposure unit or direct sunlight. Participants will use Akua water based intaglio inks to print the plates onto paper. The class will also explore multi-plate printing and chine colle processes to further develop prints. While technical information will be presented over the three days, the class focus is developing and expanding upon your own imagery. Each day will begin with drawing exercises that may inform artist’s work. Beginners welcome and materials will be included in the workshop cost.
