[BKARTS] WORKSHOP at Garage Annex School for Book Arts - Prints (from Photopolymer Plates), Easthampton, MA

Hello, friends:

The Garage Annex School for Book Arts is pleased to add the following 2-day
workshop to our schedule. Amaryllis offered Prints (from Photopolymer Plates)
earlier this year and the students were so enthusiastic we've had numerous
requests to offer another opportunity.

Prints (from Photopolymer Plates)
November 910 (Saturday & Sunday)
$145 plus $80 materials and lab fee
Instructor: Amaryllis Siniossoglou (see biographical information below)
special location: UMass Amherst, Massachusetts

Would you like to explore printmaking using the latest
development--photopolymer plates? If so, this workshop is designed for you.

You will have the opportunity to work in the printshop at the University of
Massachusetts, where all equipment and materials will be provided (plates,
etching press, ink, paper). You may opt to do drawings on mylar. And/or, you
may choose to work with photographs altered and manipulated with Adobe
Photoshop, and printed on transparent film. In either case, your art will be
transferred as mirror images to delicate photosensitive polymer plates by
exposing it to UV light. The art is photoetched onto the plate, you ink the
plate, and run it through the press. Images will be printed with permanent
inks on archival papers.

No previous printmaking or computer experience required.

As noted, materials and equipment needed for printing are provided. Please
bring gloves, a roll of paper towels, ruler, pencil, drawings and/or
photographs, and an old shirt or apron.

If you have questions about the content of the workshop please contact

If you want to register please contact Daniel Kelm at 413-527-8044,
