Photopolymer Plate Making

  • Iota Press 925-d Gravenstein Highway South Sebastopol, CA, 95472 United States (map)

with Jami Taback

Bring your prepared drawing that should be 4 1/8 x 5 1/8 inches in black ink on white paper for one of the process. For the second process we will be scratching free hand into negative film (supplied at workshop).

An exposure box will be on hand to create the plates right there at the workshop and we will also have time to explore some more advanced inking methods to get the most out of your plates and to bring life to your images. These plates can be inked for Intaglio as well as Letteprress (relief printing).

Proof your plates on the Vandercook Press and take away a few prints of your work.

We will take a very quick lunch break, please bring it with you.

$15.00 material fee (included in price) includes 2 plates, ink, transparency film and proofing paper.
