Photopolymer workshop | April 16 | Lari Gibbons

Tipping Point I; photopolymer, mezzotint and chine collé, 2010

Photopolymer Plates with Lari Gibbons
Saturday, April 16 from 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

Workshop Description:
Learn how to make and print photopolymer plates in this one-day workshop. Using a collection of plates provided by the shop, youʼll explore intaglio and relief printing methods to make your own unique printed designs on paper. You will also expose one of your own images to a photopolymer plate that can be printed in combination with the others. 

Photopolymer processes can work in a variety of studio and educational settings. The plates can be exposed with a simple light source, developed with water, and cleaned with vegetable oil. While this workshop will use professional-quality equipment and tools at P.R.I.N.T. Press, ways to translate the process to low-tech studio environments will be discussed.

Lari Gibbons is an associate professor at the University of North Texas, where she teaches printmaking and drawing. She has won numerous grants––including the inaugural Research and Creativity Grant at the University of North Texas (2009–10)––and her work is held in many private and public collections, including Beijing Natural Culture Center, Musée dʼArt Contemporain de Chamalières and the New York Public Library.
