Solarplate Workshop

Saturday I was very happy to lead a workshop on Solarplate printing for 8 eager students at Whiteaker Printmakers Studio . Everyone made at least one print and all learned a great deal as did I.

Solarplate Workshop Sept. 19th

We are excited to announce a new workshop that mustn't be missed next month!
WhitPrint member and well-known painter and printmaker Robert Canaga will be leading a one-day workshop on Solarplate printmaking. Solarplate is a simple approach to printmaking using a light-sensitive polymer on a steel plate. The photopolymer is exposed with a UV lamp -- or even sunlight -- and developed in ordinary tap water.
In this workshop, you will have an opportunity to create and print from your own plate. Robert will take you through the process from start to finish. You can learn more about Solarplate at http://solarplate.com/, and read more about the workshop (and register!) at the workshop event page.
Don't miss this chance to learn this technique from a local art celebrity! This is a one-day event, on Saturday, September 19th, 10AM to 3PM. All materials will be supplied.
Hope to see you there!
Heather and Paul
