Photopolymer Gravure Printmaking from Calibrated Digital Positives

October 22-24,2015, 10a-4p at Flatbed Press in Austin Texas
with Scott Martin and Byron Brauchli

Byron at Workshop

Scott Martin of Onsight and  Byron Brauchli of Izote Editions team up for 3 days of photopolymer gravure printmaking from calibrated digital positives. This is really two workshops in one as participants will learn how to make calibrated positives and negatives for any alt-photo printing process, and photopolymer gravure prints. It’s an opportunity to learn from two established craftsman and make gravure prints of your own images.

Participants will learn how to produce print-ready transparencies using common ink jet printers. Byron and Scott will instruct students on how to use a free and easy-to-use software to print, in one easy step, transparencies that will beautifully reproduce images in warm gravure blacks, cyanotype blues, or in other alt-processes. We’ll make custom ICC Profiles that will allow you to perfectly simulate your alt photo printing process on screen. Participants will create 1-2 plates and print a small edition. If time allows, more advanced printing techniques like chine collé or à la poupée will be covered.
