Polymer Photogravure at the Ansel Adams Gallery

posted on: April 24th, 2019

This class is an introduction to the polymer photogravure process, a non-toxic alternative to the traditional copperplate photogravure process. This intaglio printing process enables the artist to produce continuous-tone photographic images using ink and paper. Plate-making, inking, wiping and printing techniques will be covered in this class and the student will leave with 8-12 etched plates and numerous prints from each plate. ⇒

Polymer Photogravure at Asheville Bookworks

posted on: January 25th, 2019

I will be teaching my final polymer photogravure workshop in Asheville this January. Bookworks will be closing as a public-facing entity at the end of March 2019, and this is the last photogravure class I will be teaching there.

The workshop will use a modern polymer coated plate to create an intaglio-etched surface, which will then produce the photographic gradation of tones making the photogravure one of the most beautiful continuous tone photographic printing process. The process presents a fantastic opportunity to expand the range of visual content that can be included in books and other similar projects.

This is a two and a half day workshop that will introduce you to the basics of making polymer photogravure plates. Bring your digital files on Friday evening and walk away with some beautiful photogravures by Sunday afternoon. Sign up at the Asheville Bookworks website.

Polymer Photogravure at Cullowhee Mountain Arts

posted on: June 26th, 2016

I will be teaching a polymer photogravure workshop at Cullowhee Mountain Arts in June, 2016. This workshop will be held at the campus of Western North Carolina University in Sylva, which is just a stone’s throw from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This workshop will use a modern polymer coated plate to create an intaglio-etched surface, which will then produce the photographic gradation of tones making the photogravure one of the most beautiful continuous tone photographic printing process. The process presents a fantastic opportunity to expand the range of visual content that can be included in books and other similar projects. ⇒
