I was fortunate to participate in a solar printmaking workshop with noted artist Dan Welden at the Rusty Barn Studio in Goleta this March 14-16.Solar printmaking is a ecologically more friendly technique than traditional acid etching.  For details on the solar plate making go to: http://www.danwelden.com
