Juror’s Workshop

Direct to plate: Polyester Plate Lithography

March 9-11, 2018

Polyester plate lithography is an simple, versatile, and inexpensive process that can add great value to a printmaker’s practice – a way of making black and white or color hand-drawn or photobased lithographs that every printmaker can have as part of their print “toolbox.” Polyester plates can be drawn on directly with various media, and then printed with little or no chemical processing. For printmakers who want to use photographic elements in their work, polyester plates can also be easily imaged on a copier and laser printer with digitally manipulated photographs, and then printed by simple hand lithography methods on either a litho or etching press. This 2.5 day workshop will guide participants through various workflows for utilizing polyester plates on their own or in conjunction with other print techniques.
