An innovative new printmaking process that uses remarkable water-washable photopolymer plates which are both fast and safe, Toyobo produces results similar to 19th century process of photogravure.
Although the course will be of interest to all artists, it is particularly suitable for those working with photographic and digital imaging who wish to produce high quality original prints.

Experience of Photoshop is advisable to make the most of the course, comprehensive step by step notes will be provided. If possible, bring your laptop with you, and it is preferable if you have photoshop or photoshop express installed.
