Explore the World of Printmaking using Shellac Plates
Instructor: Dawn Endean
Week 2: August 6 - 12, 2023
Shellac Plate Printmaking is a low-tech and versatile technique for creating both intaglio and collograph prints. Through demos and lots of hands-on work we will create shellac plate prints using a variety of techniques including “etching”, collograph, chine collé and shaped plates. Students will gain proficiency in a range of printmaking skills, culminating in a varied portfolio of work. This course is for both beginners and experienced printmakers looking to add a new technique to their repertoire. Instruction will be tailored to the experience level of the student and will include lots of demos as well as group discussions and individual coaching.
