Collagraph is an under-sung printmaking technique that is cheap, simple, experimental, and versatile!
Collagraph plates can be printed using either relief or intaglio methods (don’t worry if this doesn’t mean anything to you!). They are easily shaped and cut, and can stand on their own or be combined with other printmaking techniques.
We will have plenty of materials to work with, but if you want to bring flexible, textured, low-relief material such as fabric, textured paper, yarn, or thread (nothing brittle, breakable, or metal) we can make use of these items in your collagraphs.
All tools and materials outside of basic drawing supplies will be provided. No prior experience necessary.
