Lise and I had the opportunity to study with Nancy Diessner last summer at Zea Mays Printmaking Studio.Â What a great class!Â We were so excited about the unlimited potential that we asked Nancy to come to Ragged Edge to teach a class here!
INTRODUCTION TO PHOTO-BASED PRINTMAKING
Â September 28, 29,30Â Â 10 am to 3 pm
October 1, 2Â 9am to 4pm
Â Photography and Printmaking are not strangers to each other, and in fact can work together beautifully in several different processes. In this class youâ€™ll work with light sensitive Toyobo Printight plates, which are photopolymer plates that are sensitive to photographic and photo-based imagery as well as direct drawing. These plates are exposed to light and developed in water and are much safer than traditional photo-etching, which relies on hazardous chemicals. The class will focus on learning the technical steps needed to create tonally rich photo-based prints, while also bringing attention to your personal imagery and helping you create a strong visual impact using this process.
