Photogravure – From Photography To Etching

Access info

With internationally-recognised photographer Silvi Glattauer, learn the use of photopolymer plates in combination with digital photography to create Photogravures.

On day one, you will prepare your images in Photoshop – Optimising the quality of your original image to suit the photogravure print. The image is transferred directly onto the plate with the use of an inkjet printer. Plates are then exposed using UV light, processed with water and printed via an etching press.  This is a non-toxic approach without the use of solvents, or acids.

On day two, there will be plenty of time for experimentation with printmaking techniques and paper options including Chine Colle techniques using rice papers and digitally created colour layers.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
