Book directly with Leicester Print Workshop by emailing or telephoning 0116 2553634 Taking inspiration from the exhibition Saturday Night and Sunday Morning turn your photos of locals, friends, and family into sumptuous black and white portraits. Solar plate is a photo-etching process in which photographic imagery is 'etched' into a plate and can then be printed many times - producing rich black and white images. During this workshop you will learn how to apply your design by exposing and developing the plate and then how to ink and print your own solar plate photoetchings. The course is being delivered by Leicester Print Workshop tutor Nick Mobbs.
