Suitable for adults and teenagers.

Solar plate etching is a fun, quick, simple & safe printmaking technique - the alternative to working with traditional acids found in traditional methods. The plate is made from a steel backed photosensitive polymer which is water soluble. Your images will be reproduced using a UV light and washed in water ready for printing on the etching press. There will be emphasis on colour during the printing process, with various ways to apply ink using viscosity process to create a portfolio of stunning colourful prints. 

Bring your own printmaking paper or purchase paper in class.

Solar plates provided.

Please see the materials list below for other provisions and requirements.
