Description

Try this exciting process, where plaster is used to take the ink from the plate or block instead of paper. Create a more sculptural quality for your prints, and be amazed at seeing your image in the printed plaster. You will cut a small lino, ink the surface, make a frame and then pour the plaster over the inked lino. After the plaster is set, a wonderful plaster print is revealed. You will also make a small intaglio plate and then print this as a plaster print. Your plaster prints have excellent longevity as the print is encapsulated in the plaster surface.

The lino plaster print has a bold bas-relief surface and the carved areas are seen in the plaster print. The detail of the intaglio print is quite amazing in the fine surface of the plaster.

Two-day workshop 10am-5pm. Workshop fee includes gst, vegetarian lunches and materials kit. Maximum 6 people.
