Location Leicester Print Workshop
Date & Time Saturday 24th March
10.00am - 4.00pm.
Tutor  Kathryn Desforges


Photoplate lithography can pick up an amazing amount of subtle tonal detail and produces great results for both photographic and drawn images. On this course you will be shown how to transfer your images onto pre-sensitised plates by exposing to UV light, and how to develop, ink up and print your plate. This course is a great introduction for beginners, or an ideal refresher.
