AboutDuring this workshop you will be given a hands-on introduction to photosensitive polymer plates. You will be shown how to make your own prints using digital files under the guidance of an experienced tutor. Polymer plates are used for both intaglio (polymergravure) and relief techniques (flexoprinting) and can produce prints with great detail, richness and texture. The aim of this workshop is to give you an idea of the possibilities of the medium.
