Collagraph Printmaking

Collagraph Workshop
taught by Camilla Taylor

In this 2 day printmaking workshop, participants will learn to make a printing plate using all manner of various substances and surfaces, such as leaves, fabric, wallpaper, modeling paste, sand, and many others. Collagraph literally means to draw or write with glue, and so the construction of the plate will be almost like making a collage.  We'll cover a variety of plate making techniques, including carburundum grit aquatint, incising, and building up the plate

Participants will also learn relief and intaglio inking techniques, stenciling, inking ala poupee, paper handling, use of a flatbed press and hand printing as they print a small run of multi colored collagraph prints.
