Expand your encaustic collagraph vocabulary using innovative plate materials and hand printing on Japanese and waterleaf papers. In this workshop participants will cut plates into geometric or organic shapes for multiple plate compositions, layer transparent color to create depth, and explore the new field of poly spun fabrics such as Evolon, learning how to use printmaking beyond traditional surfaces. Instruction will incorporate hand printing for those without a press, tips on the many tools to use, demonstrations of additive and subtractive wax applications, guidance with Akua inking, and discussion on presentation and mounting of finished pieces . There will be individual and group critiques and a large selection of plates and prints available for viewing. Awagami Factory has generously donated paper sample packs for each student attending.
