The workshop aims to learn how to process the digital image in order to transfer it to a physical support, which can be inked and printed. We will learn how to generate different types of positives, the procedure for transferring them to photopolymer film and the process for obtaining the finished matrix for the final print.
The participants will have three 15 x 20 cm format matrices to develop their work.
The development of the course will be focused on the dynamics of a printmaking workshop, so that the participant learns how it works and participates in the whole process necessary to produce the graphic work independently. In this sense, we will set up the place defining the different printmaking areas, so that it can serve as a model for subsequent initiatives.
