Gum Bichromate Printing

Instructor: Laura Valentino

To make the most of our time, the class will be limited to 4 students.

Gum Bichromate is a historic photographic process which uses layers of gum/watercolor solution to create a painterly, photographic image.

This workshop will be taught in English, but Laura also speaks Icelandic if you need some points clarified.

Solarplates are photosensitive plates that can be printed intaglio or relief. They can be exposed in natural sunlight or with artificial UV light. They are developed in water. Alone or combined with other printmaking techniques, they create prints of depth and beauty. Drawn, collaged and photographic imagery, both representational and abstract, work beautifully with these plates. In this workshop we will explore Solarplates, intaglio and relief inking and printing in a non-toxic environment. All levels of printmaking experience welcome.

Cost: 42.000 kr includes most materials. Additional paper & plates will be available for purchase. Workshop participation is limited. Register early to ensure your spot! For more information or to register contact
