Beyond Monotype or Layers and Plates, with a Side of Solarplate or ImagOn

These workshops are designed to bring together various contemporary platemaking processes with monotype and collage to create unique, mixed media prints or Edition Varied prints. You will learn one or more of the processes of Solarplate, Solar Platinum, and ImagOn to create repeatable imagery. This includes the preparation of your artwork for platemaking, the use of various transparency materials, mark making tools, and computer generated imagery. Various inking, printing and registration techniques as well as the use of Akua non-toxic water based inks are all aspects of the workshop. In depth demonstrations of monotype and chine collé/collage techniques will open the door to the incorporation and/or enhancement of the intaglio image. Experienced artists are encouraged to bring previously prepared matrices for integration into this open ended workshop process.
