4-day workshop; 2 weekends
Saturday-Sunday, 12-4pm | September 14-15 & 21-22
Collagraph printmaking is an intaglio process utilizing collage techniques to create easy and fun printing plates. Using found materials, household items, and a bit of invention, you can get results unlike any other printmaking medium. On the first day, we will begin to learn about the collagraph technique, have a little print show and tell, and begin the preparation of the plates. We will work on our plates in the studio on the first and second day. Plates may be completed and dried at home during the interval, adhesives need to cure for at least two days before they can be inked for printing. For the second weekend, we will start with a print demonstration, and spend the day experimenting with the printing process. No previous printmaking experience required.
Materials included: Printing plates to collage onto, printing paper, adhesive, textures, mediums and ink.
Suggested materials for participants to bring: Cutting tools: X-acto knives, scissors, hole punchers, etc. Collage materials: Thin textured papers, cardboard, fabric, plastic, plant material, tape, string, etc. Or any soft textured item that you might like to use (These will also be provided if you don’t have anything special you might want to incorporate)
