Workshop description -
Collagraph (sometimes spelled collography) is a printmaking process in which materials are applied to a rigid substrate (such as paperboard or wood then called 'The Plate').
The plate can be intaglio-inked, with a roller or paintbrush, or some combination. Ink or pigment is applied to the resulting collage, and the board is used to print onto paper or another material using either a printing press or various hand tools.
The resulting print is termed a collagraph. Substances such as acrylic texture mediums, sandpapers, textiles, bubble wrap, string or other fibers, cut card, leaves can all be used in creating the collagraph plate.
You will experiment and create your own ‘plates’ and use prepared ones to produce your own prints, using the large printing press. This is always a fun, easy form of printmaking!
Students to bring - any and all of these sandpapers, textiles, bubble wrap, string or other fibers, cut card, leaves or other item reasonably flat and not sharp.
