 Photogravure Workshop with Byron Brauchli

This workshop consists of the production and printing of a 9 x 12 inch copper plate photogravure.  The student will learn to print a film positive (from digital file or original negative), expose, grain, and etch the copperplate, subsequently experimenting with a variety of Izote Etching Inks and printing techniques on papers of his or her choice. This workshop features the classic dust-grain gravure technique dating back to Karl Klíc. We will also discuss contemporary adaptations, specifically the use of calibrated digital positives and their linearisation and profiling. Date: May 18-21, 2018. Hours: 10:00 to 19:00 hrs. Duration: 36 hours. Cost: $400.00 U.S. – All materials are included for plate production and printing. Six students maximum. Location: Ediciones Izote, José Clemente Orozco Coapexpan Col.
