      Something Old, Something New: Printing from Photopolymer Plates

      September 12 & 19, Consecutive Saturdays, 9:00-5:00

      Instructors: Marnie Powers-Torrey and David Wolske, Utah

      Location: Book Arts Studio, J. Willard Marriott Library, 4th floor

      Workshop fee: $150; materials fee: $25



      Everyone loves the look and feel of letterpress printing, but doing
      everything the old way sometimes feels overwhelming. Skip the
      typesetting and carving and use current design software and
      photopolymer plates to print type, illustrations, and halftone images.
      Spend the first Saturday in the Marriott Library computer lab learning
      to create the image files required for conversion into film negatives.
      The following Saturday, utilize your negative in making a photopolymer
      plate. Explore the delightful melding of old and new technologies as
      you lockup your plate and print your image and text. Leave with a
      portfolio of imaginative work.
