About the course:

Turn simple photocopies into printing plates. By saturating the photocopy with just the right amount of gum arabic solution, you can create a ‘plate’ in a similar way to lithography. Rolling over the photocopy with ink the black areas of photocopy will attract and hold the ink and the more oily plain paper areas will resist the ink, remaining clear. You can work with photographs and/or hand drawn imagery. Jeni will show you overprinting and layering to add more depth and colours. Results are delicate, tonal and quite unique.
