Collagraph is a technique of making a printing plate by collaging and creating different textures on a backing board which is then sealed and can be printed in intaglio or relief.
This 2 day workshop will introduce various ways to create collagraph plates using a variety of materials to create textures; plaster, textiles, wallpaper, thread, adhesive, carborundum grit, varnish, adhesive tapes etc
Students will spend day 1 creating a series of plates using a variety of materials. Some plates will be ready to print towards the end of day 1 whilst others will need to dry overnight ready for printing on day 2.
Day 2 will be spent printing the plates made on day 1 and experimenting with different inking and printing techniques.
Materials are included and students are welcome to bring along any textured materials they would like to experiment with.
