Soft Plates: Monotype Studies @ AS220 Printshop

Saturdays July 13 + 20, 10-1pm

REGISTER

In this class, students will be introduced to the process of platemaking and monotype. The instructor will demonstrate monotype and platemaking techniques using monotype-relief plates that students make during the class. These ‘soft plates’ will be printed on the Printshop’s Takach Etching Press measuring up to 54” x 9’. Students will print on the two traditional etching and relief presses with a maximum area of 18” x 28”.

The ‘soft plates’ are thin substrates like paper, plastic, and vinyl are made into semi-durable shapes, that are capable of holding fixed details, etchings and carved lines. In this process each plate is inked and then placed so there are no fixed compositions. The plates can be stacked and rearranged to various effects quickly. Due to the nature of these plates the images they produce can have graphic qualities with clean and well defined negative space around areas of distinct color.

Students will learn proper press operation and be authorized to use the etching presses after completing this course and signing up for AS220 Industries membership.
