Pronto Plate Lithography
In this fun 2–day workshop, combine text and image with a laser printer to create polyester lithography plates. These “pronto plates” can be further manipulated with sharpies and ballpoint pens before rolling them up with ink and running them through a press.
The first session will introduce you to the lithography printing process. Upon registration, you will be encouraged to email an 8.5" x 11" black-and-white jpg to the instructor. Your file may be text, image or a combination of the two. You will use this image in your first pronto plate.
Once you have a feel for the process, in the second session you will devedlop your skills with a second image. You will leave the workshop with an edition (or two) of prints that can be hand-colored, collaged together, or framed as they are.
One piece you produce will be included in the gallery exhibition of your choice (Side Show, Contemporary, Pot Luck or REM Cycle) on view at UFORGE Gallery in 2013.
This class takes place at UFORGE Gallery, 767 Centre St, Jamaica Plain, just around the corner from the Eliot School. Download directions. (pdf)
