Multiple Plate Printing: Hand-Drawn or Digital Images


Create two or three photopolymer plates from a colour drawing or a digital file. We will then experiment with inking the plates in a range of colours and printing them together in register.

Wondrous overlays and mixtures of colours are possible when you layer the plates onto fine printmaking papers.

A basic knowledge of printmaking would be advisable.

 Agave Print Workshop is located in an amazing 1970s A-frame at Trentham, a small town 97km north-west of Melbourne. Accommodation available. Price includes GST.
