Shellac Plate Printing
Creative Arts Community
August 7-13, 2022
This week-long residential workshop will be held at the beautiful Menucha Retreat & Conference Center on the beautiful Columbia River Gorge.
Shellac Plate printmaking is a low-tech and versatile technique for creating etching-like intaglio prints as well as subtly textured collographs. Through demos and lots of hands-on work we will create and print plates using shellac on an illustration board matrix. Students will be encouraged to experiment with the wide range of effects that can be achieved with shellac plates to express their own visual ideas and aesthetic. Some printmaking experience helpful but not required.
