  • Solarplate Workshop

Solarplate Workshop

Date: Saturday January 10, 2015 through Sunday January 11, 2015
Time: 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Location: Durango Arts Center
Price: $195 Members / $225 Non-Members
Capturing Sunlight
with Louise Grunewald
Experience Level: Introductory Class
$195 Members / $225 Non-Members
2 sessions: January 10-11, 2015
9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.What better place to learn solar printmaking than under the high altitude sun of Colorado? In this class, students will learn how to transfer their images to a UV sensitive Solarplate using the power of the sun. We will begin by preparing an image for exposure onto a Solarplate. Techniques for exposing the plate, preparing paper for printing, inking the plate, and running small editions on an etching press will then be covered. This versatile process is suitable for almost any kind of image, including words and text. While learning the exposure process, students will be free to experiment with creating a variety of images, from simple to more complex. Any written words or text can be transferred to a plate and then printed out in the correct (readable) orientation. Writing and imagery can be combined. Students can draw or paint or collage their work or use their photographs to print from. We will work with non-toxic, water-based inks to ensure safety for the environment and the participants. The intent of this class is to teach the very accessible technical aspects of the process in an atmosphere of fun and guided experimentation. Students will end the weekend with small editions of their images and an increased understanding of the world of printmaking. Supply fee will be paid to the instructor.
