Expand and refresh your photolithography skills during this two-day weekend workshop with SNAP’s Founder and Printmaker Marc Siegner. You will be guided through the full process of working with washi (Japanese paper), positive working photolitho plates, incorporating digital outputs from SNAP’s Epson printer with printing on the offset press, and through the chine-collé process for the final printed results. Demonstrations will include preparing digital files for both digital printing on washi and creating positive films for exposing to photolitho plates, exposing and processing photolitho plates, preparing washi for printing on the offset press, printing techniques, registration, and chine-collé. Throughout the weekend, collaboratively print using the offset press and chine-collé using the etching presses. At the end of the workshop, students will walk away with an informative and extensive refresher as well as the skill set to be capable of preparing and processing photolitho plates and printing independently in SNAP’s Printshop on the offset press. Each participant will take home one of the printed demonstration prints.
* Participants will need to have previous experience in photolithography or plate lithography processes (either offset or etching press experience is fine).
