Smart Plate Workshop with Kathryn Polk

January 17th and 18th, 2015

Arizona artist Kathryn Polk is one of the jurors for the Print Austin sponsored Contemporary Print Exhibition hosted by Big Medium Gallery at the Canopy which opens January 17th. She is the co-owner of L VIS Press, a lithography print studio in Tucson, Arizona.

Time: 10a.m.-4p.m.
Cost: 175.00 (must be paid in full by January 10th)
Class Size: Six

Supplies: Workshop provides plates, rollers, black and colored inks, other needed stuff. You bring paper, apron, images and excitement. Anna is loaning her printer and I have a nice paper cutter to size the plates. WPA does offer Rives for sale as well.

The workshop will focus on two -plate color prints using this exciting polyester plate process.

Some Smart Plate information from Takach Press:
Laser plate printing is similar to aluminum plate lithography. Smart Plate polyester plates are designed to print high resolution computer imagery using a dry toner laser printer. Plates may also be hand worked using permanent markers, ball point pens, etc. Plates do not require the traditional etch process. Simply image the plate, process with chemistry (we’re using toothpaste and gum Arabic!), ink, and print. Traditional litho inks, etching, offset and some relief inks can be used. We will print using the etching presses.
