Shellac Plate printmaking is a low-tech and versatile technique for creating etching-like intaglio prints as well as subtly textured collographs. Through demos and lots of hands-on work we will create and print plates using both shellac and water-based polyurethane on an illustration board matrix. Students will be encouraged to experiment with the wide range of effects that can be achieved with shellac plates to express their own visual ideas and aesthetic. In consideration of chemical sensitivities, pre-made shellac plates will be supplied; only water-based polyurethane will be used in liquid form during the workshop. Some printmaking experience helpful but not required.
