Polymer Photogravure


Weekend workshop with Martyn Grimmer
Sat 19 June & Sun 20 June 2021
10am – 4pm


Polymer Photogravure is an innovative process that uses polymer & steel backed plates with a light sensitive coating to produce remarkably rich tonal and linear intaglio prints, similar to the quality achieved in 19th century photogravure prints. During this two-day workshop you will be introduced to photographic plate making and printing using this flexible intaglio printmaking method. This technique is acid free, using ultraviolet light and water to develop the plates. It requires participants to have suitable photographic imagery prior to the course to develop ideas. The workshop will be of interest to all artists, and is particularly suitable for those working with photographic and digital imaging who wish to realise high quality original prints.
