Weekend Workshop on Bainbridge Island:
Shellac Plate Printing
January 28 & 29, 2023
8890 Three Tree Lane NE
Bainbridge Island, WA 98110
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 is useful but is not necessary.
