Day 1. Demonstrating and processing of plates, rolling up places, and possibly multiplate colour techniques.
Day 2. photo processes via simple photocopy press transfers onto the aluminium plates which can be collaged. Also offer interesting opportunities with a second plate for adding colour as solids or a drawn /painted sections via use of USA made Sharpie pens.
Participants will be printing with special waterless litho inks that Neil will provide for the class together with small diameter brayers for rolling up. Participants will be printing final prints onto a lightly dampened 250 gsm hot presses rag paper.
