The day is based on the idea that the plate is just the beginning. The image continues to change throughout the dynamic process of printing it. By mixing and applying inks in different ways, incorporating collage, overprinting and masking areas, the image is not fixed till the moment of committing it to paper. It is rewarding to take a single plate and see how many different images you can produce from it, and the day loosely follows this idea.
You will be nudged out of your familiar groove, try new approaches and experiment with fresh colour combinations.
Bring your own plates or make a quick one on the day. Many ‘print days’ follow a course as often people feel they need an extra day.
