$150.00pp (all supplies included)


About the Workshop

In this workshop you will have the opportunity to do ‘multiple’ impressions with a simple approach without the use of acids, solvents and hazardous materials.  Dan Welden pioneered the alternative approach to printmaking with masterful results obtained by using "Solarplate," the steel backed LIGHT SENSITIVE polymer plate which is processed with UV light and ordinary tap water.  Dan teaches this easy process with ‘originality’ in mind for participants to work spontaneously and directly.  Artists can draw, paint and transfer images directly on the plate or work from transparencies or digital images.  Once this matrix is processed, it is capable of yielding many impressions, inking it by hand and transferring it to beautiful paper with an etching press.

No experience in printmaking is required.

This workshop is running concurrent with Dan Welden’s exhibition at Gold Coast Arts. Workshop will be followed by a screening of a “Lasting Impressions,” the one-hour film about Dan Welden’s life and work.*

*Please note – the screening of the film may be open to the public. If you are interested in the screening of the film only please email for updated information.
