What is Solar-plate etching?
Solar plate etching is a non-toxic form of printmaking. A photosensitive photopolymer plate is used to expose a design in the sun.
It is washed in water to reveal the image hardened by the UV rays. The plate is dried and printed on the etching press. The original design needs to be applied onto clear transparency film.
There will be 2 solar plate available 15x10 cm (A6 size) and 1 test plate. Many variations in the printing process will be demonstrated. Each participant will create up to 10-12 colourful prints on Stonehenge paper.
