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.
