Photogravure Workshop at +UWE Bristol with Peter Moseley

Photographic printing processes from the mid and late nineteenth century offer a wide variety of printed surface, colour and texture that differ markedly from the clean, sometimes almost sterile appearance of modern digital images. The early photographic processes (aka alternative photography) require a real hands-on approach in the choice of paper, chemistry and coating, and provide every opportunity for the printmaker to produce individual and beautifully aesthetic work.

The #photogravure process was developed in the 1870s and became famous for the beauty and quality of its #gravure prints. This is real, put on a proper apron and roll up your sleeves, printing. In outline, the process involves etching a photographic image into a plate which is then inked and put through the high-pressure rollers of an intaglio etching press sandwiched with handmade or art paper. Prints can be produced using special inks of any colour.

Originally the process involved etching the image into a copper plate, but there is a modern equivalent that is somewhat more manageable. A photosensitive polymer plate is exposed to ultra-violet light under a translucent acetate copy of the original image or photograph and then washed out in water. Where the plate has been protected from the light by dark parts of the acetate it remains soluble in water and these areas will be removed; where the plate is exposed to light it becomes hardened and these parts will not wash away. After it has been dried, the plate is covered in ink and then the surface ink removed by careful wiping. Ink remains in the lines, grooves and hollows, where the unhardened polymer has been washed away, and it is the ink in these depressions that forms the image when the plate is put through the press in contact with dampened art paper. It’s quite a performance but well worth the trouble, prints made by this method can be stunning.

This five day course will introduce course delegates to all the key aspects of the process including:
· Calibrating polymer plate exposure
· Producing the digital transparency
· Exposing, washing out and hardening the polymer plate
· Preparing the paper, inking the polymer plate and pulling the print
· Drying and protecting the print

Delegates will be able to make gravure prints from at least three of their own photographic images, from film negatives, photographic prints or digital files. This course is suitable for beginners and no prior experience of intaglio printing or Photoshop (a computer program for editing digital images) is required. All materials will be provided.

Course Tutor
The course tutor is Peter Moseley. He is a qualified teacher with over forty years’ experience as a photographer. He has an MA in #Printmaking from Brighton University and is currently half-way through a PhD research project at the Centre for Fine Print Research, UWE. He has exhibited at solo and group shows and recent work has been shown at the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers open exhibition in London and at the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol.

2D-3D Experimental Book Art Structures

This new, five-day experimental, sculptural artist’s book masterclass at +UWE Bristol is led by multidisciplinary artist Guy Begbie.

Constructing books from printed material into 3D structural forms contained within their bindings. You will use additive monotype printing and structural paper engineering to produce freestanding books and pamphlets of sequential imagery. Utilising hand cut type forms and a collage/montage printmaking approach, you will learn how to compose the matrix to print from, as well as translating printed material into books to creative narrative, structural context.

The course will cover a combination of 2D surface print and 3D paper book construction with paper engineering, cutting and assemblage carried out with the printed material. Participants will be shown and encouraged to make books that open up from the containment of their bindings into a freestanding structural environment, creating sculptural, architectural artists’ book works.

Guy Begbie is a multidisciplinary artist and master bookbinder, working with artists’ books, printmaking, video and installation. He has been teaching interdisciplinary bookmaking for 25 years in the UK and internationally, for education, libraries, galleries, individuals and arts organisations. Guy will be returning to us from his recent research trip to Australia, an invited Siganto Foundation Artists' Books Lecture and masterclasses at State Library of Queensland, Brisbane.

Decorative Japanese Techniques for Paper and Book Arts

In addition to exploring traditional Japanese decorative methods such as #suminagashi (floating ink marbling), #momigami (kneaded paper) and #orizomegami (folded and dyed paper), participants will also investigate paste papers, wax resist processes, #frottage (relief rubbings from found object matrices), texturing with gelatine sizing, lamination, tea-dyeing and faux leather fabrication.

An Ordinary to Extraordinary Paper Surface Design Lab. Finding the right paper for a project can be difficult, but artists need not be limited by the selection of commercially produced materials found in art shops. There are many ways to create beautiful unique papers from inexpensive and ordinary materials.
