Collagraphy is a form of printmaking in which prints are created from collaged media that has been attached to a printing base. A wide variety of relatively flat or textural materials can be adhered to the collagraph plate, and eventually printed onto paper using a press. In this workshop, participants will build their own collagraph plates using found materials and acrylic-based media, then create an edition of works on paper utilizing traditional methods of printing.
It is recommended that participants bring their own samples of textured materials for use in their collagraph plates. Fabric, lace, leaves, and string are all suitable, but nothing with a thickness of more than 1/4” can be used. Any samples will be coated with acrylic medium, so remember not to bring anything valuable!
