Cliche Verre - Hand drawn negatives

  • 90 British pounds
  • Location 1

Service Description

Are you are interested in exploring a historic and unique method for producing a printing plate? Cliché Verre is a little known 19th & 20th century technique to make multiple photographic prints of your hand drawn images that would be both unique and beautiful. The technique is still practised by individual artists but little known. ​ As with other workshops, you will be introduced to the history, technique and safe handling of chemicals and materials to make your work. You will be able to play with textures, line drawing and painting onto glass and either work from your own source materials, directly from the landscape or set up a still life to work from. ​ Once your Cliché Verre plates are ready you will have the option to either work with Cyanotype or Van Dyke Brown methods to print an edition of your images. For those who have attended a Carbon workshop, this print process is also an option. ​ Fee includes materials.
