Photopolymer Platemaking

November 5, 2022 @ 10:00 am 4:30 pm

10:00AM-4:30PM PT

Instructor: Jami Taback

Location: Room 208

Join Jami Taback in this exciting exploration of photopolymer plates, a high-quality printmaking process that uses sunlight and water to create a photogravure printing plate rather than chemicals. Learn printmaking techniques that cover inking, color and tools used for embellishing the plate. Bring a photo and create a photogravure with clear details and a range of light and mid tone grays.

Tapping into the mysteries of your creative potential onto a surface, you have the opportunity to print several prints in brilliant colorful expressions. Plates work for intaglio printmaking and are extremely durable and versatile. Some prior printmaking experience is necessary. Students may bring their own paper. Asian papers work beautifully and so does fabric, like silks and cottons with a tight weave. Fiber artists enjoy this process when creating wearable art.

All printmaking supplies are provided including one 4” x 5” polymer plate, inks, and some paper. Additional plates (4” x 5” and 8” x 10”) will be available for purchase during the workshop. Bring a few photographs, a sack lunch, and an apron and gloves if you have your own. Upon registration you will receive more detailed instructions from Jami Taback. You may email her at with questions.

Sliding Scale: $30-220
