If you are interested in trying photopolymer printmaking, you can still sign up to take my Solar Photopolymer Printmaking 3-day workshop at the Providence Art Club. You don’t need to have any experience in printmaking, Elena and I help each student at every step. For artists experienced in printmaking, this is a chance to experiment combining photopolymer plates with other techniques. You can also have a great lunch at the club each day… the club serves a range of wonderful salads, sandwiches, burgers, desserts and more.

Solar Plate Printmaking Description: Students will work with new 21st century photopolymer gel plates, UV light and tap water to make a printable surface. Easy, safe, and fast, these printmaking plates are ready to print in only 20 minutes. Instruction will cover all the ways to create images on these plates, multiple approaches to printing as well as showing how other printmaking techniques can be combined with solarplate. The possibilities are as exciting as they are numerous.
Will be a great three days!
