Lise and I took this fabulous workshop at Zea Mays last summer.
We were so inspired, we invited Nancy to teach at Ragged Edge in September!
Photo-based Printmaking Workshop July 25-29
Photography and Printmaking are not strangers to each other, and in fact can work together beautifully in several different processes. This workshop will introduce you to the magic of several distinct photo-based printmaking techniques, including the lithographic Pronto Plate process and Photopolymer Intaglio, which involves a photo-sensitive polymer plate. These processes are much safer than traditional photo-etching, which relies on hazardous chemicals.
This five-day workshop with photo printmaking expert Nancy Diessner will allow you to immerse yourself in these processes, and will give you the confidence to explore how you can best adapt them to your own artwork. Weâ€™ll begin with the more direct processes, and work up to Photopolymer Intaglio, the process that has the potential to be the most refined. Weâ€™ll wrap up the workshop exploring ways to combine these processes together with other printmaking processes, to create startling and unique prints.
