Workshop Overview

Solarplate etching is an incredibly fast and versatile new way of making non-toxic prints! A light sensitized polymer plate is exposed using a small light unit or sunlight. Artists make prints by exposing the plate through a transparent film with hand-drawn or digital artwork, photographs, or xeroxed images. This is fairly technical, so it helps if you have experience printing an etching. Monotype layers take your prints to a new dimension: using soy based inks, we paint on ink or roll it onto plates, manipulating ink with a variety of mark-making tools. The results can be bold or subtle.

About the Instructor(s)

Jane Pagliarulo received a BFA in Printmaking from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. From 1989 to 1996 she cut her teeth as a fine art printer at Hand Graphics in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she printed lithographs, woodcuts, etchings. As head monotype printer she worked one-on-one in creative collaboration with artists who had tremendously varied conceptual and technical approaches. As a result she strays beyond the traditional boundaries of printmaking. In 1996 Pagliarulo moved to Oregon, founding a printmaking workshop in Hood River. In 2007 she co-founded Atelier Meridian, a collaborative membership printmaking studio in Portland.
