Solar Plate Etching
Two-Day Workshop
with Chris Ann Ambery

Learn the incredibly versatile and environmentally friendly method of printmaking called Solar plate etching. Beginner and seasoned artists alike will enjoy exploring this exciting, non-toxic medium. Solar plate etching utilizes a thin steel plate that is coated with a UV light sensitive photopolymer. All that is needed to create a plate is sunlight, water, and your imagination! No harsh chemicals or solvents involved. This method works well for photography as well as drawing. Artists will explore various materials and learn a variety of ways to create unique plates and prints.

Materials will be provided by instructor.
Materials fee $30

Note to PHOTOGRAPHERS: If you would like to work with photography, please convert images to black and white then print them onto a transparency. The image size should be 6” x 8” or larger. You can have them printed at Staples or you can print them on a home printer. Be sure to use the transparency that is appropriate for your printer (Do not use Pictorico).
