$35 materials fee includes plates, ink, and paper

The term collagraph stems from the Greek, “colla” being derived from the verb “to glue”. The collagraph is composed of layers of materials that are glued or attached to a substrate.  The plates can be inked both relief and intaglio opening up a wide range of print possibilities.

During the workshop we will explore one way of making a collagraph, by gluing carborundum grit to plastic plates. Using transfer drawing as a starting point, participants will create monotype “sketches” to provide imagery for making the collagraph plates. Transfer drawing is a great way to loosen up and refresh your appreciation for the marks and shapes of the natural world.

We will make plates on the first day of the workshop, and ink and print them on day two. We will practice intaglio wiping methods with Akua Inks, and using larger rollers for relief printing.
