    Instructor: Anne Cushmanco-founder of our cooperative

    Two Session Course: Thursday, February 5th and Saturday, February 7th 

    Explore the versatile, contemporary printmaking process of solarplate printing. This non-toxic method of plate-making uses solar energy (UV light) and water to develop an image for an etching or photo-etching.  No acid is used! Starting with a drawing or photograph, the results can be wonderful, varied and lead to creating a limited edition.  

    This 2-session workshop is fine for both beginners and experienced printmakers.  The first evening session is a demo and learning the process; the second day, creating the plate and printing your image multiple times. You bring the creative spark and an apron or smock; and we provide the materials. 

    Session One: Thursday, February 5, 2015; 6:30-8:00pm 

    Session Two: Saturday, February 7, 2015; 10:00am-2:00pm 

    (half hour break for lunch) 

    Fee: $95 includes all materials. Limited to 6 students
