An expansive and all encompassing term, collagraph or “collage print” is a complex and incredible flexible form of printmaking. Relatively non-toxic and very accessible due to the variety of materials that can be used, collagraph has a myriad of incarnations which we will address in this 3 part zoom workshop. We will explore the techniques and materials often associated with collagraph but we will also touch on the unexpected and overlooked aspects of the medium which will include matrix choices and options, carving, collaging, sculpting, sealing, and printing both in relief and intaglio. The first two classes will focus on the creation of plates for both relief and intaglio printmaking while the final class will focus on printing techniques both with and without a press.
No experience necessary.
Please note, this is a 3 part workshop, taking place on 3 different days via Zoom.
